RSPB_GardenFestGlasgow Wildlife Garden Festival returns from Wednesday 1 to Friday 31 July with worm charming, photography workshops, a city-wide bioblitz, and much more! The Glasgow Wildlife Garden Festival has launched its programme for 2015, offering over 70 exciting events at sites around the city.

Now in its second year, the festival is a collaborative effort between RSPB Scotland, Glasgow City Council, community groups and community gardens, encouraging everyone to explore Glasgow’s green spaces and create more homes for nature.

More information is on the Glasgow Wildlife Garden Festival website. Leaflets can be picked up from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow Botanic Gardens, and Halfpenny Bridge House. For more information you can contact gnahg@rspb.org.uk, tweet @RSPBGlasgow and #glasgowwildfest or phone 0141 331 0993.

The festival is part of Giving Nature a Home in Glasgow, an RSPB Scotland initiative which aims to re-connect people with Glasgow’s urban green spaces. This year, it is part of Glasgow Year of Green biodiversity month, and many of the events will highlight simple ideas to help the public and businesses create more homes for nature, like
planting for pollinating insects, and putting up nest boxes.

Some of the sites, organisations and groups involved in the Garden Festival include Glasgow Botanic Gardens, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the Tramway, Buglife, Froglife Kabloom, Grow Wild Scotland, Opal, Glasgow Life and Glasgow City Council, Cranhill Park, North Kelvin Meadow, Woodlands Community Garden, Govanhill Baths, Castlemilk Park, Lambhill Stables, Roots of Ruchill Community Garden, Urban Roots and Shettleston Community Growing Project.
