Leith Links Community Council would like to work with local schools again this autumn to plant spring bulbs in Leith Links – last year’s very successful planting of 10,000 bluebell, crocus and snowdrop bulbs have made a lasting difference to the park and we would like to build on this.
We hope to organise a series of sessions during school time, probably in the week beginning Monday 8 November. We will provide the bulbs and the tools and overall supervision, in conjunction with the City of Edinburgh Council Park Rangers – we will show you where to plant and how to plant the bulbs. We’d expect each group to spend perhaps 30 minutes doing the planting, but you might want to combine this with other activities in the Links and if we are able to help with this we’d be happy to do so. Ideally we’ll be working with small groups (e.g. the Eco committee) or an individual class rather that the whole school.
