Keep Scotland Beautiful
In 2019, Scotland was the first country in the world to declare a climate emergency, and with Glasgow hosting the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in November, 2021 is the year for looking forward and supporting the green recovery. Gardens are important for health and social well–being whilst also supporting the natural environment by helping to sustain wildlife. There is great potential for our community groups to help maintain biodiversity, make a major contribution to reducing carbon dioxide emissions and prepare for the growing impacts of climate change. Keep Scotland Beautiful has produced a publication with tips on:
Gardening in a Changing Climate
Informative Poster Idea
Making your own compost
Planting Fruit Trees
Start a Community Food Growing Project
And links to lots of resources
There are some good ideas that can be adapted to use in your intergenerational projects.
Access the publication and make links to become climate and nature friendly.
Please email us throughout the year, and share through social media channels tagging @KSBScotland and using #beediverse – you never know who you might inspire.
[Please do email ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos of your seeds – being sown, growing, full bloom – and also record any pollinator sightings to share with us].
