People all over Fife and the UK have adopted all types of spaces, parks, wasteland, ‘green deserts’ and planted community gardens, orchards, trellises, wheelbarrows outside shops, and community gardens. Here in Rosyth our project consists of the Rosyth Community Garden, Centenary Orchard and Rosyth Community Hub.
Fife Council set up EATS in 2012 to show how public greenspaces could be used for growing food which could also be harvested by the public.
EATS Rosyth was initiated by Rosyth Community Council. It is delivered through Rosyth Community Projects Ltd to demonstrate how to transform previously unimaginative, unappealing green spaces into productive growing areas which bring all sorts of benefits to the community whilst also inspiring others.
We are a registered charity with the purpose of advancement of education, citizenship or community development, environmental protection and improvement, and the relief of those in need.
You can see locations of EATS at the Fife EATS website.
You can find the EATS Rosyth locations on our contact page.
If you would like to be involved check out our volunteering opportunities.
Come and have a chat with us at Rosyth Community Garden on Park Road or at Rosyth Community Hub on Aberlour Street to find out more. We distribute food via the hub and have two weekly community meals on a Thursday and Friday evening (5-7pm). Opening hours can be found here.
