About Wildflower Meadow Making at Ruchill Park

We are creating a new meadow at Ruchill Park to support local butterfly populations, and need volunteers to help out. On this first event, we will be raking back some of the grass and sowing seeds of a wildflower called 'Yellow Rattle'. In future events we will be planting wildflower plug plants and sowing more seeds, and in the summer we'll come along to see what butterflies are there.

This event is suitable for all, but children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Even if you can only make it for an hour or two, you are still welcome to come along to help out. 

This event is part of the Helping Hands for Butterflies project, which is generously funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Scottish Natural Heritage and members of Butterfly Conservation. It is being kindly supported by Glasgow City Council.
