Keep Scotland Beautiful's It's Your Neighbourhood initiative is free, part of the Royal Horticultural Society's (RHS) Britain In bloom campaign.

Register by the end of April.

It is designed for small groups greening up their local community through gardening, environmental and community activity. It can be the local street, an existing community garden or a disused area needing a revamp.

Non-competitive, signing up gives access to resources, networking and support from experienced volunteer assessors/mentors who will also visit to give useful suggestions and highlight achievements.
