With winter drawing to a close and spring beginning there's lots to do up at Townhead. This Saturday we'll be meeting up at our Townhead site -at the side entrance of St Mungos Primary on the lane that connects Stirling Rd and Parson St from 11:30am onwards.
If you'd like to do some planting, please bring either hellebores, primroses or crocosmia bulbs, a pair of gloves and a trowel or fork to dig with. Don't be put off if you haven't done any gardening before someone will be on hand to show you how and where to plant your donation. As we do not receive any funding at all, everything we plant is funded out of volunteers own pockets and much as I'd like to I'm not rich enough to buy all the plants we need so if you can help out by bringing along one of the plants we're looking for it will be much appreciated. Hellebores, Primroses and Crocosmia bulbs are available from some supermarkets, garden centres and online garden shops, if you?re having trouble locating a stockist please email and I'll do my best to help out.
If you don't fancy bringing along a plant you can still help out by picking up litter, all you need to bring is a pair of gloves to protect your hands and a bin liner to bag up the litter.
If neither of those options appeal we need assistance to dig in some very generously donated compost we've been given. If you'd like to help with this bring a spade or garden fork, gloves and plenty of energy.
