Woodlands Community Garden News

This Saturday (25th May), meet at the garden at 1.30pm
Possil Marsh is a wild bird sanctuary consisting of marshland swamp and fen around a shallow freshwater lake.  150 different bird species have visited the marsh, 30 of which breed there now.  If we are lucky we might see reed bunting, willow warbler and sedge warbler; not to mention unusual plant-life including orchids, ragged robin, and marsh cinquefoil.  Meet at Woodlands Community Garden at 1.30pm or join the route at Maryhill Shopping Centre at 2pm.

Saturday 1st June 3-7pm
Join us at the garden and in our new gap site for a relaxing afternoon of sculpture, music, food and performance, with contributions by students from the Glasgow School of Art. Poster attached, please circulate. If you can’t make it on the Saturday then pop down on Sunday 2nd June from 12-2 for another chance to view the sculpture installations. After Sunday’s exhibition, why not carry on with the entertainment by wandering along to the Gibson Street gala.

Sunday 9th June 12-4pm
with a wee break for a Garden Meeting at 2pm
Plants! Plants! Plants! Join us on Sunday 9th for a brilliant big and bright session of wild-flower planting – in the garden, in the back lane and at our new gap site. Family friendly fun that will brighten up your day as well as promote bio-diversity. We’ll be taking a short break at 2pm for a garden meeting to help with final arrangements for our big summer spectacular taking place the following weekend….

Sunday 16th June 11am-4pm
Come explore and celebrate the local flora, fauna, culture and history with us at Woodlands Community Garden where there will be a rich tapestry of tales and poetry weaved by local residents and environmental storytellers. As part of The Glasgow Science Festival and West–end Festival, this free family event will share the story of the garden, some green-fingered crafting tricks and ideas for living more sustainably. Round the corner in Millenium Park on Ashley Street there will be a community BIG LUNCH – a chance for you to cook a dish and share food with your neighbours and friends as well as  join in other indoor foody happenings at the Albany Centre. More details coming soon. Once upon Today is a collaboration with Glasgow University’s Environmental Sustainable Team. Big Lunch is a collaboration with Flourish House and GCVS Albany Centre.
