Amazing Bee Friendly Meadow
We seek to enrich the plantlife and biodiversity of North Kelvin Meadow & Children's Wood, to support plants that are friendly for bees, in an adventurous community planting project - our Amazing Bee Friendly Meadow.
You can access the land from either Kelbourne Street or Clouston Street in Maryhill. We are a 5 minutes walk from the Botanics. The land was once playing fields and tennis courts but is now a community greenspace. The land is managed by the Children's Wood in collaboration with the wider community.
If you would like to find out more about our Grow Wild events or to come and join us please check out our events on our website or contact us directly!
