The Lothians Conservation Volunteers carry out practical nature conservation work every weekend in and around Edinburgh and the Lothians for the benefit of wildlife, people and the environment.
We are delighted to announce we will be returning to Granton Castle on Saturday 17th November to continue with the scrub clearance work there. Clearing the scrub enables the community garden's own volunteers to return the land to productive community use.
As we enter a fresh new quarter with LCV, the summer is already fading to memory and a chill is in the air. During the summer we enjoyed a successful resi trip to Taynish, and we have a weekend resi in Dumfries and Galloway planned for October. In other news from last quarter, seven of our volunteers completed a first aid course in early September, meaning we'll now have even more first-aiders at hand when out on task.
