This vacant site, loaned to the project by Cloch Housing, is already a mini meadow. Yellow rattle, common orchids, red clover and knapweed in plentiful supply. We will maintain the site to enrich its biodiversity and harvest it for green hay to reseed other sites until the land is developed.
This is a grassed site maintained by Inverclyde Council. We have seeded bedside the trees and along one side of the area with wild flowers to create colourful butterfly and bee glades, whilst leaving lots of public access to the grassed amenity areas.
The Belville Biodiversity Garden will sit at the top of the Belville Community Garden on vacant land kindly donated by River Clyde Homes. It is currently under construction and due to open in summer 2017. With its swathes of wild flowers, cairn and stumpery, it will be a idyllic place to spend some time. All of the elements we have included to encourage biodiversity could be repeated in any garden. Come and be inspired.
