Motion text

That this House congratulates Forth and District Initiative on being awarded £3000 in National Lottery funding to install five composting bins at the Forth Eco-Site; notes the group aim to maintain the beauty of the area through green initiatives, ranging from collecting rainwater for the plants to using wind and solar power for light and heat on the eco-site; recognises the positive impact the eco-site has on the local community by encouraging residents to maintain their own raised beds, and their continued involvement in a food co-op which sees freshly grown produce provided to the local foodbank and pensioners; and further notes the increase of young families using the site over the past year and the educational benefits of learning about nutrition and the environment as communities attempt to tackle climate change.
