Calling all local groups and volunteers! Want to take part in a brand new community garden?
Then join in with the new Aberporth Heart of the Community Garden at Canolfan Dyffryn, supported by Keep Wales Tidy.
Plans are already underway to transform a neglected area of land around the former youth centre into a flourishing garden with vegetables, flowers and fruit trees.
Julie Woods Project Coordinator says ‘We hope to increase awareness of public space and environmental issues by showing what can be done in a small space to address issues such as biodiversity, local food growing, carbon reduction and air quality, at the same time creating a lovely space for people to enjoy in the heart of the village’. Once the garden is established some of the things grown will go straight back into the community via our Community Fridge.
The Project which is supported by Keep Wales Tidy and is one of only two in the County will help improve people's health and mental wellbeing by providing enjoyable outdoor physical activity, social contact and learning opportunities to raise self-esteem. Having an attractive, welcoming green space within walking distance for quiet recreation will enhance mental and emotional well-being.
The Community garden is looking for people to get involved, meet new people and get gardening! If you are interested in volunteering for the project please get in touch with Julie Community Projects Coordinator at email@example.com.
