Edible And Tasty Spaces (EATS) Rosyth

Edible And Tasty Spaces (EATS) projects are public spaces which are planted with fruit, vegetables and flowers. People are able to ‘help themselves’ to ripe produce or the food is harvested and given to community groups or good causes.

EATS Rosyth grow fruit and vegetables in Rosyth for people to harvest freely. We also share this local tasty food via the community hub and in regular community meals, showing how locally grown fruit and veg can be used in cooking. We also accept donations of surplus food to reduce food waste.

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

Learn About Growing

Growing

EATS Rosyth are developing a network of planting beds, planting structures, community gardens and an orchard to ensure the people of Rosyth have easy to access, fresh, local produce. We want to make attractive growing spaces that the community can help maintain and take ownership of. We also aim to inspire and encourage others to try growing their own food and as a result reduce their carbon footprint.

Learn About Cooking

Cooking

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 will be holding cooking workshops from our hub where we can cook, eat and learn together, sharing tips on how to make the most of the food around us. We will make community meals with our local produce and donated food and look at ways to reduce food waste. We try and save produce from going to waste by storing and preserving, making items such as jams and chutneys.

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
