On Saturday 5th June 2021 we celebrated planting the first trees with the p7s from Slains School and many others, young and not so young, all working together and enjoying beautiful sunshine in the Kirkland field.

With graphics by Fiona Bell, and science facts from Prof Jo Smith this video is both fun and informative – illustrating what each of us can do to cut our carbon footprint to a smaller size. Cut a tonne in 21 !!
As of 31st March, SEAchange now owns the land for creating a community woodland, as well as the kirk building with a small piece of land alongside the graveyard. We’re very grateful to the Scottish Land Fund for their grant award which has made this possible.
We’re excited to be starting out on this new venture, which we believe will enrich our community in many different ways and we would like to thank all the community for input, feedback or support in helping to achieve this milestone.
Discussion meetings are scheduled and taking place on an ongoing basis, with around 30 at the most recent online meeting, planning what action to take as the project goes forward.
You are welcome to join us for discussion and planning future action, sharing progress, and listening to invited speakers.
And you can catch up with an earlier meeting when 58 people came to hear Prof Pete Smith speak and answer questions about the Climate Emergency on 26th February 2020. This was the first in a planned series of monthly talks.
Plans are continuing to evolve all the time through email communication and Zoom meetings.
The meeting will follow our usual format, learning how we can understand our climate footprint and the best ways to improve it. If you haven’t been before, you are very welcome – we would like to hear all ideas in order to arrange future discussions with guest speakers, and to make plans to reduce our climate impact.
