Our Horticultural Therapist, Natalie, has been busy in 2017 developing our therapeutic gardening projects in the CSGN area. The project currently covers six garden sites, and we have now provided 65 therapeutic gardening sessions, attended by an average of 50 participants per week, lasting 2.5 hours per session. Natalie has provided us with a quick update of how the projects have progressed so far.
Central Scotland Green Network Trust (CSGNT) is working with Buglife Scotland, local schools and communities to help transform the John Muir Way into a rich habitat for pollinators.
The Planting for Pollinators along the John Muir Way project aims to help create wildflower areas along the route of the John Mur Way and within 3km either side, by encouraging local schools and communities to plant mini meadows that will help provide foraging environments for pollinating bees, hoverflies and other insects as well as homes for additional wildlife.
