Inverflora consists of a group of volunteers who plant, sow, weed, water and maintain a huge range of planters and flower displays in Inverkeithing.
We frequently co-ordinate events with other local groups and individuals for the benefit of the community.

As a group, Inverflora is particularly keen on green issues - we re-cycle, improvise, compost and think about the environment. Our allotment features a variety of bee and insect friendly plants and we carefully choose plants which attract pollinators in the flower beds throughout the town .... single flowered varities provide easiest access. Wherever possible, we encourage community participation by involving other local groups in activities.
Inverflora is grateful for the generous continuing support given by local businesses and other community groups.
Included in Inverflora's plants for pollinators are - alliums, aquilegia, borage, centauria, comfrey, cornflower, corncockle, cranesbill, hesperus, limnanthes, marigold, ox eye daisy, nasturtium, phacelia, poppy, polyganum, raspberry, strawberry and wallflower
The Inverflora Crest has been approved by the Lord Lyon and is an adaption of the Inverkeithing Town Crest.
Team work is important, so we frequently consult with the area Parks Team.
They are excellent in helping out with major or heavy projects, while our volunteers have undertaken tasks in return, such as intensive hand weeding during staff shortages.
