Just after 10am this morning children from Oaklands arrived and got the planting started. Soon after those children left, Eco reps from Craigroyston arrived on site at Muirhouse Avenue. In true Craigie fashion the heavens opened. Despite the heavy rain the kids spirits were not dampened and they were ready to listen to local artist Natalie who gave them instructions on how to plant the bulbs
” You see a bulb – Pick it up – Dig a hole – Pop the bulb in and the replace the soil”
It wasn’t long until more local children and adults joined in to help plant the bulbs in the afternoon. Over 300 bulbs were planted in M alone. Another FACT about MUIRHOUSE the size of the Letters are 2 metres by 17 metres.
Over 40 pictures were taken today – They can be viewed at facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.306353579479813.74037.291944384254066&type=1&l=dc1bfe0908
