Nearing the end of summer, we held three open days for local people at the down to zero site in Mwyndy, Pontyclun. The site has been made available by the wonderful people at Cenin Renewables who continue to show the project so much support.
The days were an opportunity for local people, organisations and anyone with an interest to come along find out about our plans for site and longer-term plans around carbon capture and food growing. The days were tied in with a Keep Wales Tidy community food garden package that we successfully acquired and was supported by Keep Wales Tidy officers Nathan and Maria. Just under 40 Local people got together, got their hands dirty, built planters, planted fruit bushes, a small wildflower meadow and we all developed skills but most importantly had fun!
Our outdoor well-being area now gives us the perfect platform to develop a well-being cabin and a lovely rest area for staff and volunteers as we move to our next step of establishing the community food orchard/forest and building compost toilets.
Diolch mawr i wirfoddolwyr ni! Huge thank you to the volunteers who got stuck in and made it such an enjoyable couple of days.
If you want to volunteer in our next stages of developing our food forest and the build of our compost toilets, please get in touch with Tom.email@example.com to register your interest. We are also looking for local organisations to partner with so please get in touch if interested.
Diolch a hwyl am y tro
Tom ar tim.
