The beginning of April saw the Go Wild in Your Garden event at the Yoker
Community Campus. The main hall was filled with lots of activities and information and ideas to improve gardens, balconies and window sills for wildlife. Teaming up with representatives from Sustrans and the West of Scotland Green Gym, TCV was illustrating why taking part in practical conservation is not only good for the local wildlife but for the health of the local communities too.
There were a variety of activities on offer and children showed their creative sides making mini-beast finger puppets, clothes peg bugs and animal facemasks. Many also pledged to plant wildflower seeds to help pollinating insects as well as adding a splash of colour to their local
green patch. The most popular activities were making bird feeders from apples, seeds and dried fruit and the insect zoo – a box bursting with a weird and wonderful collection of snails, spiders and beetles which inspired children to go on a bug hunt in the Campus’ garden.
With a buzz of activity throughout the day it is hoped that the Community Rewilding Project will have raised awareness for the importance of greener healthier gardens for people and wildlife.
