Gardening Day at Sanquhar Primary Wildlife Project proves a great success 26th March


Last Saturday saw Sanquhar Primary host a Gardening Day to help to develop and maintain their Wildlife Project.

Sanquhar Primary with the support of Community Windpower (CWL) have created a fantastic Wildlife Garden in their school grounds. There’s an area with planters for growing flowers and vegetables, a big Willow dome, a bug hotel, composting bins and much more. The Wildlife Garden is great for kids as well as being a huge benefit to local wildlife.

Like all gardens, it needs a lot of care and attention and so on Saturday a team got together to tackle some jobs that urgently needed doing before the Spring got underway. Educational Ranger Pete from BeGreen Dalry and Liz Parsons, our ecologist from Starling Learning were both on site to provide advice and a willing pair of hands.

The Willow structure had become very overgrown, and much of the day was spent pruning it, as well as weeding the paths and installing new compost bins. Thankfully the Gardening Day was blessed with good weather and everyone had a great time despite the hard work.

In line with our Memorandum of Understanding with Sanquhar Primary, CWL are committed to continuing their support for the Wildlife Project and look forward to seeing the Wildlife Garden Project continue to thrive.
