Making Connections

Post in Community Groups & Events by Tina Hartley
Its so important at the moment to connect with each other and if we can come together and connect with nature too - result!

Interested in growing, interested in connecting with others, interested in connecting with nature?

Our next community event will take place on: 
Saturday, 28 August 2021, 1 - 4pm, Lochluichart Community Hall/Church and their beautiful scenic backdrop. (Please note this event was previously planned to be held at Strathgarve )
So what's the plan?  Well let me tell you, for starters we will have:
  • Some beautiful music from the talented Clarsach player, Isbel Pendlebury.
  • Come and prepare planters and plant some bulbs.
  • Sunflower growing awards.
  • Have your say about where the planters should be placed in the community.
  • Bugs and stuff - kid's activity.
  • Squirrels and how to find them! 
  • How to draw a squirrel - kid's activity.
  • A lovely art display from community residents.
  • Art demonstration - theme connecting with nature (TBC).
  • Support local community groups - Green Leaves, On ya bike!, Garve Litter Busters, Needles and Hooks, Yoga.
  • Used an elecro-static sprayer?  Come and find out about them and what they can be used for.
  • Lochluichart Kirk is a beautiful church designed by Thomas Telford, also know as a parliamentary church built in 1827 at the cost of £1,489.3.3d.  Come and have a look round, you are most welcome.
  • AND last but not least refreshments - teas, coffees, juice and food.

We are still hard at work on planning so there may be more news to follow - but for now put the date in your diary.

Oh, and don't forget to sign-in and pop over to the groups section of the website and follow Green Leaves the new community growing initiative.

This Green Health activity/event was made possible with funding from Highland and Cairngorms LEADER LAGs (The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in rural areas) and was initiated by The Highland Green Health Partnership which aims to encourage more of us to make use of our local green and blue spaces.
