GARDENING FOR SCOTTISH WILDLIFE 

A Walk and Talk with Alasdair Taylor

 

 

On Saturday 8th June meet at Bothwell Community Garden at 1.30 pm to take part in a walk highlighting gardening for Scottish wildlife and learn how you can make your garden attractive to birds, bees and butterflies.  By using the right plants and techniques you can create a tiny but vital slice of wild woodland on your doorstep.

This event will start with a short walk in Bothwell Woods, followed by a guided tour of our garden to see our own wildlife garden areas. Alasdair Taylor, the ranger taking this walk, will include storytelling about the folklore of some of the plants which grow in our local area.

Sturdy footwear and rain jackets are probably advisable judging by our weather so far this year! Please note that dogs, with the exception of assistance dogs, cannot be permitted entry to the Community Garden.
