Glasgow's Flower Power

Glasgow City Council & TCV Scotland

Since World War II the UK has lost 97% of its wildflower meadows; a strikingly beautiful habitat which is essential for our bees and butterflies. With the help of volunteers, we are attempting to reverse this decline.

You can stop by the wildflower nursery anytime; to help out or to have a nosey. We host a 6 months program of Tuesday and Saturday volunteering dates, 10 - 12.30pm. All tools & gloves provided, with tea & coffee.
