Update on our ‘Flower Bower’
As part of our Edible Landscape Project we’re creating a ’Flower Bower’: a semi-circular dry stone wall seating area which will be a lovely place to sit and rest while viewing our meadows and edible garden at Dunnikier Country Park.
The first stage in the process was building the dry stone wall – this was completed over a weekend at the beginning of April (2nd & 3rd April) by a master craftsman and team of volunteers from the Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain, Central Scotland Branch. Some of our volunteers joined them to give a helping hand too!
We’ll be adding a locally carved wooden seat within the wall. We’ll also be working with our volunteers and local groups to plant a range of local and native, insect and bee-friendly wild flowers in and around the ‘Flower Bower’, helping to increase biodiversity in our wild spaces.
Our volunteers started this on Wednesday (27th April) with Johanna and Gabrielle from Fife’s Buzzing – a joint venture between Fife Council and Buglife.
We’ll be doing more soon and we’ll keep posting regular updates!|
