The VIBES grant, presently in its twentieth year, perceives those Scottish organizations which have attempted to essentially decrease their effect on the earth by more productively utilizing their assets. “We had exceptionally testing space limitations and guidelines to stick to, yet from start to finish, Landia was resolved to make it work – and work it unquestionably has.”
