“As we make the transition to a sustainable society, the work of organisations such as Mariposa is going to be absolutely vital. Their projects will engage whole communities in work which revitalises green spaces, encourages people to switch to a healthier diet, reduces food miles and carbon emissions, and helps promote biodiversity. I was really inspired by Stephanie’s approach, and I look forward to seeing Mariposa’s gardens flourishing all over East Dunbartonshire.”
“VOLUNTEERS got digging at a Bearsden green space in a bid to transform it into a wildlife oasis.
They planted 100 native trees in King George V Park in Killermont in a move that will make it a haven for birds, bees, bugs and butterflies.
Environmental charity Mariposa led the planting, and were joined by pupils from Bearsden Academy’s eco-committee and members of the Butterfly Conservation Glasgow Branch.”
