CLEAR would like to invite you to their harvest festival to celebrate the first year of Buckhaven’s Bountiful Growing Space on Sunday 16 Sept. at Buckhaven’s Bountiful Growing Space, in between Omar Crescent and Burns Avenue Buckhaven. 12pm-4pm.
We have been busy since January 2012 turning a disused park into a thriving community garden and orchard. With help from volunteers, neighbours, local schools and other volunteer groups the garden is now bursting with colour, fruit and veg., so we could really do with a hand in eating it.
CLEAR have also been busy setting up The Globe Wildlife Orchard opposite Buckhaven Primary holding weekly school sessions with the pupils exploring, maintaining and building new habitats. Kerry a local artist has been creating a exciting and colourful mural over the road which has been the talk of the town as it progresses.
A new Therapeutic Orchard will be up and running in the next few months and with our members newly qualified in Orchard Care and Management means our other wild and town orchards are in good hands.
We have planted around 200 fruit trees over the past year (making a grand total of 1000 fruit trees in Buckhaven) and will be tasting them and juicing at the event.
Food and activities include:
- Freshly caught mackerel from our local sea anglers.
- Harvesting and cooking veg straight from the garden and wild fruit from the braes- broad bean burgers, nasturtium pesto, fruit sorbets and more!
- Fruit Juicing
- Music and Croquet in the Orchard
- Garden activities and plants to take away
- Craft and Kids activities
- Fun with Wild Flowers
- Films in the shed
All happening at Buckhaven’s Bountiful Growing Space, in between Omar Crescent and Burns Avenue Buckhaven. 12pm-4pm.
