To celebrate #EarthDay, the Root Cause project held a ‘Hairy Caterpillar’ and ‘Earth man’ event at Giffnock and Thornliebank Libraries, led by the brilliant Kay and Alan.
The children got to make either a ‘Caterpillar’ or ‘Earth man’ out of grass seed and soil. They took them home to look after, watering them gradually each day until the grass seed started to grow!
Take a look at the new resident Caterpillar at Giffnock library.
Over at Clarkston, Eaglesham and Busby Libraries we held a seed bomb craft event, where we made these fantastic little balls bursting with wildflower seeds!
The seed bombs are not only great fun, but by sowing native wildflowers they provide vital resources to support lots of different insects, that can struggle to survive in urban environments.
Barrhead Foundry rounded the day off with a beautiful book display to inspire, promote and engage readers of all ages.
Thanks everyone for coming along!
