Beautiful Perth is a voluntary group whose activists take a hands-on approach to keeping the City of Perth, Scotland looking good. We do different sorts of work, from gardening and running (and entering) Award schemes to litter picking, local cleans ups and environmental projects.
In the Spring and Summer we are kept busy helping plant and maintain the gorgeous public flower beds, floral displays and sustainable planting areas that make Perth bloom with colour (and for which the City has won many Awards over the years). We also run the local 'Beautiful Perth Awards' which give local residents, schools, organisations and businesses an opportunity to show off their own gardens, floral displays, environmental and neighbourhood improvement projects.
Our clean-ups and anti-litter campaigns carry on all year round. We sometimes do our own projects but we much prefer to work with others, and we try to encourage local people to set up their own action groups to tackle issues and establish a sense of pride in their own neighbourhoods. We can provide extra volunteers and equipment but local people can make the biggest impact!
