OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We have 3 aims:
1. Protect the environment by growing a beautiful wood.
2. Feed the community by growing fruit and vegetables.
3. Promote cycling by building and maintaining a mountain bike track.
We regenerate our community and create community assets through environmental action.
We plant trees to develop a scenic woodland for walkers, a wind-break for the playing fields and a place of environmental benefit.
We explore the developing ecology of the wood and educate ourselves about biodiversity.
We grow our orchards and forest gardens to provide local food for the community.
We use permaculture & organic techniques and develop expertise in sustainable gardening practices.
We promote cycling by the planned development of a mountain bike track to compliment the local cycle network.
We want to build great track that will inspire local cyclists and also attract visitors from all over Fife.
