Willow Butterflies

The Greenspace Ranger had a rare opportunity to work the PKC Youth Team in delivering the Youth Achievement award at Breadalbane.

The participants wanted to make connections with the Dalweem Care home and decided on plants and a feature.  The feature ended up being a butterfly made out of willow to representing dementia care .  The participants collected monies for plants that could be grown around or up the feature via a cake sale.  The butterfly and plants are to be presented to Dalweem Care home shortly, so watch this space for an update.

Natural Art – School Holiday Activity

Greenspace Ranger Susan Whyte was naturally creative with children from Crieff on Wednesday in MacRosty Park.

All you need for this activity is imagination!  It is free, it can be done in the garden, when out on a walk, playing in the park, or during one of our volunteer sessions..  We do ask that you please take your materials from the ground and not straight off plants / trees.
