We are raising money to build an earthen pizza oven and a chicken coop in the garden of our community café!

by Fife Employment Access Trust in Leven, Scotland, United Kingdom

The  Silverburn Project

Silverburn is a charity-run park which is undergoing regeneration for the benefit of the local community! The park also works with volunteers who have issues accessing employment and helps to build their skills and confidence.

The Estate

We have 27 acres full of beautiful mixed woodland, grassland and historic buildings with the main attractions being our volunteer garden and café, which aims to deliver healthy eating through our seed-to-plate scheme.

The Cottage Garden

Our cottage garden is currently undergoing a restructure which involves building multiple raised terraces for growing herbs, fruit and vegetables but we need a little more to complete our sustainability cycle and to add something which truly captures the imagination of the local community!

Animals at Silverburn

Many people of Levenmouth remember Silverburn fondly from their youth when they would visit the many farmyard animals in the park and now, almost 20 years on since the animals left, we want to bring some back to Silverburn!

Why we need your support...

We want to populate the cottage garden with a flock of wonderful chickens which will provide eggs to the café kitchen, as well as being a crucial decomposer in our food cycle, by eating all food scraps and turning it  back into compost for the garden!

We also want to provide something special from our garden and start to make delicious fresh baked pizzas for our volunteers and visitors. We intend to build a natural earthen pizza oven like this but with an additional communal seating area! This build will be carried out as a training course for several large donators to the cause and will also be used to run food workshops for our employability charity in the future.

 Our Vision

Our vision for the future is for our bountiful cottage kitchen garden to provide many healthy eating options with food that has travelled 0 miles and to provide workshops, training and opportunities for people to work closely with this project!

This is where you come in...

The money that you donate will go directly into buying our chickens, building them a beautiful place to live and bringing in the right people who can bring our pizza oven dream to fruition!

Please help us raise the money needed to make this project happen by taking a look at our awesome rewards and pledging to your favourite one, some are limited so don't miss your chance! If we don't reach our £5,000 target, all pledges will be refunded, and we'll get nothing, so every penny you can pledge really does count. Thank you!
