Extra task at Granton Castle walled garden

09/10/2018 Posted by

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. [More]

Taynish and Mhoine Mhor 10th-15th June 2018

16/07/2018 Posted by

After a glorious spell of May weather, hopes were high for our June residential in (sometimes) sunny Argyll. Especially as last year it didn't rain once! As before, tasks on the menu included control of bracken on the hills of the Taynish peninsula to allow better control of the deer population, and the removal of birch scrub from the Mhoine Mhor bog to reduce the level of water loss.

As I write this, we begin a new quarter in the middle of a heatwave following the summer solstice and the group's annual residential week at Taynish and the Moine Mhor. This quarter we are again looking forward to a variety of tasks on both new and familiar sites. [More]
