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

Our busy Community Garden is open for all to enjoy. The 0.3 acre space has been significantly developed with a number of raised beds, planters, a polytunnel, storage and potting sheds and an eco-toilet. There’s a wide range of produce growing in the garden, being shared with the local community.

Learn About Cooking

Community Hub

We want to provide nutritious and affordable food for people to enjoy and benefit from. We intercept surplus food and share it from the Hub, and we hold regular events so that people can eat, cook and learn together. We try to use food as a social catalyst in Rosyth.

Orchard and Bees

Just over the road from our 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 three beehives! It’s a beautiful space which is constantly being developed with the help of our volunteers.

Volunteering & Membership

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:

We are also looking for new members of the project. Our members have a say in how the community-owned project is run, and can vote at our annual general meetings. It’s completely free, and the form for joining is here.

About Our Organisation

People all over Fife and The UK have taken over all types of spaces, parks, wasteland, green deserts and planted community gardens, trellises, in wheelbarrows outside shops, planted orchards, started community gardens.
