EATS Rosyth pledge to tackle climate change

EATS Rosyth have been encouraging local residents to grow their own food and help reduce carbon emissions in the town. We have been greatly encouraged by the numbers of people who have risen to the challenge either by growing, volunteering or by choosing to compost instead of sending more and more waste to landfill. This week our volunteers came together to sign the Climate Change Pledge for Communities. By signing this pledge we are committing to:

  • take active steps to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, collectively and individually
  • tell people what we are doing and why
  • explore other actions we can take to address climate change and our resilience to it.

Climate change will have an impact on our community and across the world and we are proud to be working hard to tackle the causes in our local area. If you are passionate about the environment and would like to help Rosyth reduce carbon, then please email and see how you can contribute.

EATS Food Project Manager Karen Dorrat has also been lucky enough to be one of the first people in Scotland to achieve the Carbon Literacy Accreditation, enabling her to share with the community ways to reduce your carbon footprint. Her particular area of interest is in reducing and tackling food waste and the Rosyth Community Hub has been a great help in achieving that aim, a place where the EATS team can distribute Rosyth Community Garden produce and where we can share surplus food and give information on ways to make your food go further.

Merry Christmas from EATS Rosyth!

We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has supported EATS Rosyth this year and wish you a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

We are excited for 2017 to see what the people of Rosyth can grow at home and in our public growing spaces and also to see our new hub become a great community space to meet with you and share the aims of our project. We are holding a Volunteer Recruitment evening on Tuesday 17th January so please come along if you wish to find out more about how to get involved. Here are a few words from some of our volunteers:

Dace says “What a fantastic discovery this has been for me and my kids. After visiting Rosyth Community Market and meeting John at his stall we decided to try out and do some gardening. So the following weekend my daughter was showing the way as she has visited the community garden before with her Primary School. I was so happy to see that there is something like this near my house as every single person in garden is very welcoming and helpful. Since our first visit we have been quite a lot and enjoyed every visit. I would like to THANK ALL involved in this project and wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS and Happy New 2017 Year.”

Rebecca says “What a fantastic team at Eats Rosyth. I started volunteering a little under a month ago with my daughter who is 21 months old. We have learned so much working along side John who has dedicated his time to encourage and support anyone who wants to come along and learn. It has been a fantastic opportunity for me to meet people in the community.
