Tomorrow, Thursday 8th November, at 2pm, a few of us are gathering in the grounds of at Tiree Medical Practice to carry out the final sowing activity of the year. But we could do with a little help - "many hands make light work" and all that. So if you fancy a little light raking and seed-throwing, and can bring your own spring-rake (we have only 2 between us at the moment), you would be most welcome.
The area at Tiree Surgery that was left to grow over the summer.
The Surgery plot is a section of the grounds, which was marked out in the spring so that it could be left to grow naturally all summer. I was pleased at how many bumblebee-friendly wild flowers came up, but there is still room for a lot more. That's why we are going to add some mini-machair seeds tomorrow. The vegetation that was allowed to grow all summer has now been cut and removed, and the remaining lawn ready for sowing.
If you are around and can spare an hour to help Tiree's bees and create a wild area for the Surgery, please do come along.
Many thanks again for your support.
