Oneness: a tree planting and conservation event – Weekend Club
To celebrate World Sikh Environment Day 2022, the Weekend Club collaborated with The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) and EcoSikh as part of TCV’s project working towards creating a wildlife corridor along the River Kelvin in Dawsholm Park.
Families from all over the city came together on a sunny Saturday to do conservation activities including planting hedgerows, creating a wildflower meadow, and building bird boxes for blue tits and robins.
The Dawsholm Park Wildlife Corridor is an ongoing project aiming to build a corridor for wildlife from the nature reserve along the River Kelvin to the Forth and Clyde Canal. This wildlife corridor will benefit the local community and natural environment through increasing biodiversity of plants and animals and creating an outdoor green space for everyone to enjoy.
The event provided a great opportunity for those who have arrived in Glasgow recently and the city’s Sikh community to meet and make connections, get outdoors and in nature on a beautiful day, and be involved in a valuable community project. Thanks to the gorgeous spring weather, a delicious meal provided by the local gurdwara, and collaboration between our Weekend Club, EcoSikh and TCV, a fantastic day was had by all!
