Community FOOD Growing

The Community Food Growing Project team have worked hard over the last year and now have 3 sites around Llanfyllin – behind the Public Institute, at Y Dolydd and in Brook Street. Growing spaces have been mulched with compost and are ready for more members to get involved. The main gardening time is 10 -12 on Tuesdays but this will expand as needed. If you want to help please join BRACE via the link https://mailchi.mp/e2d67b52f4db/brace-membership , this will allow us to keep you up-to-date with events and help comply with our insurance obligations.

Some photos to show how much has been achieved already – how much more could we do if we could add to our dedicated little team??

The food and compost group revolves around the fact that food is an essential for all of us. The production of our own food will not only provide for our area but also reduce air miles, discover stonger community and reconnect us to the land we sometimes feel so distant from. We hope to teach people about composting and growing to show that it can be easy and for all with the right know how! 

Progress : we are currently aiming to gain access to a few areas that we can begin to gorilla garden to create food for everyone.

We had a great day at our first Hot Compost workshop! Had a great time clearing the area an putting this together! Couldn’t have done it without you all!!  Of course a huge thanks to Richi for teaching us all about compost and making this possible!
