Springing into action

Crocus planting, Edinburgh Rd

Spring is a time for tidying, and our volunteers have been out and about in Perth with their litter pickers, gardening tools - and paint brushes!

Woodlea Cottage

The Cottage provides respite care for children with special needs. In April, we worked alongside the YMCA and the Princes Trust to brighten up the garden with brightly painted tubs, tyres and benches. 

Perth Station
One of our regular partners is Perth Station Gardening Club. We help with their biodiversity garden and with the hanging baskets, tubs and displays that brighten up the platforms and car park. Last week, we went along to see the Jellicoe Express as it passed trough Perth on its centenary year tour. This steam train was vital to the war effort in World War One as it carried Navy personnel to Thurso on their way to the fleet at Scapa Flow. More information can be found here.  Here's the real train and a slighly smaller one we helped to paint and plant!

Perth Lade clean up

In May we joined staff from Perth & Kinross Council and local community volunteers to pick up litter from the Lade that runs though the City.

A large number of bin bags were filled over the two days, a sad reminder of how carelessly discarded rubblish can blight the landscape. As our Chairman John Summers pointed out in an interview for STV News, litter is unsightly and dangerous and should be recycled or disposed of responsibly. 

Rosie's Garden
We were delighted to be invited to attend the opening in April of Turning Point Scotland's 'Rosie's Garden' social enterprise on Shore Road. The project provides service users from Turning Point Perth with hands-on horticultural experience as they grow plants for sale and vegetables to cook. To mark the opening, a rowan tree was planted in the grounds.
