The Aden Community Allotment Association is calling on everyone to lend a hand to improve their local environment.

It wants to prise people free of their armchairs and get them involved in their local community.

The Aden Community Allotment Association has received a small grant to develop their community areas from CSV Action Earth at the allotment site at Aden Country Park.

The activity is part of a campaign called CSV Action Earth organised by Community Service Volunteers (CSV).

As part of this year’s campaign, Scottish Natural Heritage will be supporting around 160 projects in Scotland through grant awards of up to £500, aimed at groups that will help support and encourage volunteer activity through practical environmental projects.

The project is working with volunteers to develop a community garden at Aden.

They are learning new skills, improving their environment and having fun at the same time.

A barren site has been brought into productive use and the new community area will also attract wildlife.

The CSV Action Earth Awards are designed to help groups of volunteers take practical action to improve and create places for wildlife.
