“When we moved back to Germany last summer, we celebrated our farewell party in the Meadow, because it is one of the places we were happiest at. The only place in Glasgow I could let my children run wild and also a great meeting point for friends and neighbours. I hope it stays wild for many more happy memories.”

Sunday 14th Feb, Build 90 Dens, Not Houses

This Sunday for Valentines day we will be Loving our Land, 12-4pm.  Come and join us! Together we will build 90 dens, not flats. Bring sticks, boxes, bits of material and help to create an alternative to building houses on North Kelvin Meadow and The Children’s Wood. There will be fire, nature play and we’ll be filming 1 minute memories of the land.

You can also plant wild flowers for someone you love or in memory of another. Please only buy native species and they need to be ‘in the green’ at this time of the year. Here’s a link to a good website
