Small projects that make a big difference!
Developing a community social and environmental space.
Supporting local primary schools with extra curricular activities.
Providing a space for individuals to come together.
Growing in Lochgelly is a voluntary environmental action group that seeks to develop environmental projects that help improve our local ecology and visually improve the town.
We are a small team of dedicated volunteers that came together in 2016 in response to the Lochgelly Community Action Plan which identified a need for the environmental improvement of our public spaces.
With an initial funding of £1500 from the Lochgelly C.A.P. participatory budget, Growing in Lochgelly has managed to develop a range of local initiatives that enhance the local environment.
Growing in Lochgelly custom build planters and benches that are distributed throughout public areas in Lochgelly for everyone to enjoy!
Growing in Lochgelly is currently engaging with Fife Council to take ownership of land at Brucefield Allotments.
As part of our Street Planting project, we engage with local primary schools and nurseries, to provide extra curricular activities in outdoor education through informal workshops.
