Flower Power: The Land Needs You

Planting extravaganza 

when – 2nd March 11-2pm

where – Community Garden on North Kelvin Meadow

Come and join the community in supporting the development and biodiversity of the land. Seeds and plants will survive in the land much better after being cultivated at home first.

Collect seeds from us, plant them in a small pot and take them home to grow. After a few weeks you can bring them back to the land to plant.

Together we can do more for the land including increasing biodiversity, supporting the wild aspect of the land and also creating more colour throughout the year.

Everyone is welcome

Meet our new Community Gardeners

Christine – Hello. I’m the new community gardener. I’ve been in the community development field for 35 years and I’m now working as a freelance gardener as it’s been my life long passion. I’m here on a Wednesday from 11-1 and I’m looking for volunteers to help prepare the community garden for Spring. I can’t wait to get to everyone and cook a big pot of soup with our produce next year!

 

Christine, Community Gardener

Stacey – I’ll be working with the gardening project as part of my university placement. I am currently in my 3rd year studying Community Development at the University of Glasgow. I’ve been in the community development sector for 5 years and in the past 2 years I have been leading a gardening project for young people where they have the opportunity to learn how to grow their own fruit and vegetables and cook yummy meals with their produce! I’m passionate about social change and equality. I can’t wait to get to stuck in and get my hands dirty! I hope to see you soon!

Community Development Worker

Stacey is also one of our youth workers at the G20 Youth Festival. More will be on here about that project soon.
