It’s been an exciting couple of weeks around the EATS Rosyth project.

For the second year in a row we came home with some great prizes from the ‘Gardening Scotland’ pallet garden competition. Some of our younger volunteers used their creativity to design a beautiful Fairy Garden complete with lego characters, unicorns, paper mâché backdrop and a solar fountain. Well done to Heidi, Summer and Haylie for winning a silver award!

Congratulations to the star of the show, dedicated volunteer Carolann Philp who was delighted to receive a gold award for her amazing ‘Help our Honey Bees’ pallet garden design. This intricate and detailed garden included its very own beehive, pots of honey, a swarm, beautiful plants and flowers and its’ very own street name ‘Waggledance Walk.’ It also won 1st place in the group prize and the overall ‘People’s Choice’ award!

Next up was a trip to Rothes Halls where our talented and extremely busy volunteer Mike Cascarino made it to the finals of the ‘Volunteer of the Year’ at Fife Voluntary Action awards. Mike works hard all year round as a community councillor, co-ordinates the local community market, and worked extremely hard to help deliver a very successful Rosyth gala. He also helps regularly at the EATS community garden and orchard and is always on hand to help at Rosyth Community Hub. Well done to Mike!

And to top it all off we were honoured to receive the ‘Community Champion Award’ at the Dunfermline Press awards at the Glen Pavilion. This award is in recognition of all the hard work of the EATS project, all those involved in making the community garden, orchard and hub a success. Thank you to all who support our work in Rosyth, we will continue to grow, cook and share food and bring our community together.
