We’ve really worked hard this year getting the meadow and wood ready for the spring and summer. So its a huge THANK YOU to all our volunteers for putting in alot of time and effort doing this, many of which have come out multiple times. We still have work to do but for the moment its about recognising the hard work put in so far this year.
At the risk of missing out people, here are a few of these volunteers: Alistair, Mike, Nikki, Ness, Stuart, Dorothy, Emilly, Katja, Ruth, Elley, Moira, Sarah, Sally, James, Martin, John, Chiara, Alyssa.
Meadow Seed about to be sowed:
Corn Poppy (Papaver Rhoeas) 10.0%, Cornflower ( Centaurea Cyanus) 16.0%, Meadow Buttercup ( Ranunculus acris) 7.0%, Musk Mallow ( Malva Moschata) 1.0%, Ox Eye Daisy ( Leucanthemum Vulgare) 12.0%, Red Campion (Silene Dioica) 12.0%,Ribwort Plantain (Plantago lanceolata) 12.0%, Salad Burnet (Sanguisorba Minor) 12.0%, Self heal ( Prunella vulgaris) 10.0%, White Campion ( Silene Alba) 3.0%, Yarrow, (Achillea Millefolium) 5.0%
We also planted some very nice Roses which will hopefully benefit both people and wildlife. One was named after Dame Judi Dench the actress of stage and screen. These roses are world renown for their fragence and with a price to match! But our land is about a sensory experience to those , especially kids, in this inner city Glasgow environment so we felt it worth paying the extra.
