Shark on Facebook

Welcome to SHARK

We are a small environmental group based on the North East Scottish coastline village of Johnshaven.  Though small we have a very active membership and are involved in several projects.  The main one is our garden waste recycling project which sees green waste from the village composted at our own compost site. We are also involved in carrying out regular beach cleaning of the shoreline in our village. This website and our Facebook page will tell you what's going on and when.  Minutes of all our meetings are available on the Downloads page.

Our neighbours in Bervie are hoping to achieve "Beautiful Scotland" status. As part of this they are organising a workday on Sunday 29th July. More Himalayan Balsam clearing, also Japanese Knotweed and building a Mink monitoring station. See the details on their poster.

The improvements at our Compost Site are going rather slowly, but we have managed to shift a lot of compost - thanks to all those who have given us donations to receive some.  It's all good stuff for that little garden project you have in mind! Details of our Garden Waste collections on the Composting page, where you'll also find the dates of collections.

If you've got any ideas about other projects we can tackle in 2018 let us know!
