Village Projects

  • WILSON’S PLACE off Sunnyside contains two areas of land that didn’t seem to have an owner and were very untidy. The Trust took over this ground in 2010 and planted both sides with coppiced willows, shrubs, herbaceous perennials and bulbs to provide year round interest
  • BONFIELD PLAY PARK is a council maintained area where the Trust, with the help of Fife Council, made a Cornfield Annual wildflower meadow in 2013 which grows with some gardening input each summer.
  • BONFIELD ROAD contains an area of rough grass beneath some oak trees. To add colour and improve biodiversity the Trust with the help of the Primary School planted a small perennial wildflower meadow in between two of the oak trees. The plants were raised from seed and consisted of primrose, cowslip, oxlip, ragged robin, sheep’s bit scabious, field scabious, vipers bugloss, knapweed and tansy. The Primary School children also underplanted the area with Spring flowering bulbs consisting of snowdrops, aconites, crocus, anemones, Scilla, and miniature daffodils.
  • MAIN STREET GRASS VERGE was an ideal situation for the Primary Schoolchildren  to plant 1000 crocus corms that now brighten the road each March.
