Help plant a wildflower meadow at Mugdock

STRATHBLANE Community Council is calling on everyone to lend a hand to improve their local environment.

It wants to prise people free of their armchairs and get them involved in their local community by helping on their CSV Action Earth project.

Brighten up the verge and please our bugs and bees by planting an array of wildflowers along the banking of Craigallian Road, Mugdock Country Park.

The activity is part of a six-month campaign called CSV Action Earth organised by CSV (Community Service Volunteers).

As part of this year’s campaign, SNH (Scottish Natural Heritage) will be supporting around 170 projects in Scotland through the grant awards of up to £500, aimed at groups that will help support and encourage volunteer activity through practical environmental projects.

Go along and help on the day (Saturday, September 29), meet the ranger at Mugdock Country Park’s East car park at 10.30am.

The planting will be along the roadside and inside the quarry fence which is difficult to cross therefore this event isn’t suitable for younger children and older children must be accompanied by an adult.
