Wildflower meadows are some of the best places to find butterflies. We are working with volunteers to a make number of small meadows at West Pilton Park, and the first workshop is on Friday 16th November. On this date we'll be sowing a wildflower called Yellow Rattle. Yellow Rattle helps other wildflowers to establish, and all it needs is raked into short grass. We will also plant some wildflower plug plants.

The event will run from 10.30am - 3pm. If you can't make it for the full day, you'd still be welcome to come along and help for however long you can!

This event is suitable for all ages and abilities. Full training will be given, and tools provided. The meeting point will be the council offices at West Pilton Gardens. Please book a place so we know how many tools to bring! Booking can be done by emailing Urban Butterfly Project Officer Anthony McCluskey on

This event is part of the Urban Butterfly Project, a project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Scottish Natural Heritage and Butterfly Conservation members.
