In my post below on my guerrilla gardening activities I mentioned my involvement in something rather exciting later in the month which I have no doubt had you all intrigued. Well I can now put you all out of your misery.
On either the 20th or 21st of August Richard Reynolds and the folk from Sky TV are coming up to Glasgow to film a very ambitious guerrilla gardening project a mere stones throw from my home in the city centre for a show presented by Noel Edmonds -yes the bearded TV monarch of Swap Shop fame!
The area chosen is rather overgrown and uncared for but has the potential to be a rather fine stretch of land for the whole community to enjoy. Which is why we need your help. I've agreed to take on the ongoing maintenance of the land after the cameras go but it's going to take a team effort to have something worth maintaining.
Obviously I would be delighted to accept any offers of long term help but even if you just fancy giving guerrilla gardening a go or getting your mug on telly you're welcome to come along. The dig will take place in the evening so you don't even need to take time off work -unless you work shifts. Whatever your level of interest or motive for coming along your help really will be appreciated and it should be a good and rewarding evening.
For those who have been struggling to get a troop together this will be a great opportunity to meet potential recruits and for those who prefer to work solo the area is large enough to allow you to take ownership of your own patch in the longer term.
If you'd like to come along please email me for details or keep an eye on the Guerrilla Gardening forum for further updates. Should anyone wish to take a look at the area before committing themselves it is the lane the adjoins Stirling Street and Parson Street near St Mungos R.C Church.
Should you know anyone who might be interested please direct them to this post or to the Guerrilla Gardening forum. I'd also be very grateful for any links to this post to try and attract as much help as possible.
