Jupiter news

Volunteers from a range of organisations are helping TCV Scotland develop a corner of the SWT Jupiter Urban Wildlife Centre, Grangemouth, into a new growing space. The project is called Jupiter Nature Connections and is funded by the Falkirk Environment Trust. Under the supervision of Anna Hamilton, TCV Senior Project Officer, the volunteers have initially been building raised beds where they will grow a range of plants, including fruit and vegetables. The volunteers belong to Caledonia Day Service, Bellsdyke Hospital and Scottish Autism, so what do they think of the new project? 

"I worked off a 3 course meal! - I like the chance to do manual work."

"Hard work but enjoyable. I really enjoyed seeing the robin."

"Good teamwork, good integration."

"Hard work, great job satisfaction, and learned new skills."
