Fruit and Blossom Group (FAB)


Sustainable Cupar's FAB

FAB is part of Sustainable Cupar's environment sub-group. This group is keen to involve the local community in preserving and developing the town's natural and cultural fruit heritage.

It is hoped that our projects will also help bring the whole community together, and give Cupar a strong identity in Fife as a centre of fruit production.

We encourage people to recycle as much food/garden waste, by making their own garden compost and promote the Cupar farmers market, where locally produced, high quality food can be bought.

FAB Aims

improving the local environment for all

Encouraging the planting of native trees

Supporting 'Cupar in Bloom'.

Group Activities

Cupar was traditionally a fruit-growing area and, like many other towns nearby, the remnants of old orchards can still be seen.  The FAB group help look after the current Community Orchard  based near to the site of one of the old orchards and also has a Fruit Growing Plot at Elmwood College.

FAB has also organised community fruit orders, and helped to maintain fruit trees in nursing homes and nurseries.  In 2017 we also collected apples donated from Cupar residents which were used for jucing and for donations to the local foodbank.

New volunteers are always welcome at FAB events, check out the diary either on the website or on Facebook for our latest activities.

Get involved

FAB meetings take place on the second Wednesday of the month. Please see the Diary page for further details.
