From 10.30 this Sunday 27 October, there will be a clean up at Victoria Park's Fossil Grove pond and fernery. We want to give the place a good tidy before the winter and try to cut back the overgrown pond.
We need as many volunteers as possible to come and join us in this challenging work!
The clocks go back next Sunday morning so a 10.30am start wont feel too early - but just come when you can. Wear sturdy shoes or wellies, clothes that you don’t mind getting mucky and bring any tools you have that you think might help. (Make sure you mark your name on them to avoid confusion.) We have some tools available for people who don’t have any and also have litter picking equipment.
Young people are welcome but under sixteens must be accompanied by an adult.
We have had some additional funds from Glasgow City Council’s Community Safety, and we are hoping to get some more from the Area Partnership and other funds so we can have another substantial fern planting day next Spring/Summer. It’s too late in the season now to plant as there are signs of frosty mornings already.
So please turn out and help us with our ambition to turn the Fossil Grove Quarry Knowe area into one of Scotland's finest ferneries!
