EATS Rosyth was founded in 2015. Our aims are to grow and share food, reduce waste, help the environment and improve food education. Consisting of the Community Garden, Community Hub and Centenary Orchard, EATS is a project encouraging people to get involved in making the town (and world!) a better place. The project is a registered charity (SC048688).

We are using the land and the power of the community for good. In our Garden and Orchard and elsewhere in the town we are growing food, cultivating native plants and encouraging habitats for wildlife. We also have three colonies of bees in our Orchard. We take donations of surplus food at the Hub, encouraging people to shop with us first. We are also making twice-weekly community meals, running cooking demonstrations, pizza events for children, and lots more!

Donate to EATS Rosyth

We are a non-profit organisation run by volunteers and as such we are dependent on funding and donations. Please help us to continue our good work.

Learn About Growing

Community Garden

EATS Rosyth has a large community garden space just off Park Road in Rosyth which is open to the public. The 0.3 acre garden has been significantly developed with a number of raised beds, planters, polytunnel, storage and potting sheds and an eco-toilet. There is a wide range of produce growing in the garden, being shared with the local community.

Learn About Cooking

Community Hub

We want to use all the delicious produce growing in our community garden and orchard to provide simple nutritious and affordable meals for the local people to enjoy and benefit from. We hold regular events in our Hub, so that people can cook, eat and learn together and use food as a catalyst for the good of our community.

Orchard and Bees

Just over the road from the Community Garden is the Centenary Orchard. It’s filled with a variety of trees and plants, a classroom, different project areas like the willow den and children’s gardening plot, and our three beehives!

Volunteering

Do you have a passion to help your local community? You could play a part as our project requires a large number of local people to regularly volunteer with our project in a few key areas:

  • Help with garden maintenance. No need to be particularly green-fingered if you’d like to have a go, guidance is provided.
  • We need people to help our with our food collections and preparation and storage and also at our community events.
  • Do you have business experience? Our charity requires ongoing business, financial and administrative support.

If you’re interested in volunteering with us please contact our Volunteer Development Co-ordinator Lorraine@eatsrosyth.org.uk
