Gardd Gymunedol Llansadwrn Community Garden will be open on Saturday 13th July as part of the Big Lunch celebrations.
After everyone has had chance to enjoy the food and entertainment, there will be an opportunity to visit the Garden and hear about how we hope to put the planning into action, help with planting & watering or even prune the apple trees.
Everyone welcome…. still lots to do and no benches yet but on the Wish List!
Get involved with designing our community garden.
We want this to be an inclusive space for everyone in the village and that includes being a part of how it looks. So we want your ideas on how the garden will look.
The comments book is in the Reading Room and will be available for any ideas but we also want you to have a play with how the garden could look.
Why not download a copy of the garden design and have a go at your own version of the design, it’s very likely that the end result will be an amalgam of all the ideas.

Garden fencing is now in place
We have been busy in the garden again, with thanks to Llansadwrn Community Council who have paid for fence which now defines the boundary of the garden. We will be softening the fencing with climbing plants and a hedgeline, but for now we really needed to define the edge and protect the new plants from the potential of wandering stock.
A great job was done by Rob Brown of First Class Fencing (as expected) who very kindly gave us an exceptionally good price for what was an extremely difficult job. Every post had to be driven into bedrock to make fence secure. Not on easy job on a hot spring day.
Our next meeting will be focussed very much on the plants we want to grow and where we want to grow them. Join us Saturday 4th May – venue tbc.
Plant your beans and your sweetcorn
The community garden is hoping to get everybody together during the Easter holidays to plant up some beans, sweetcorn and some sunflowers. Time to start saving your pots.
We will confirm the date nearer the time.
We would also like your ideas and thoughts on the garden. There is a board up in the Reading Room, along with the comments book which we will use as a basis for a funding application.
We will also be doing a community consultation which will be available online in the very near future.
Since the Community consultation in November the volunteers charged with setting up the Llansadwrn Community Garden have been hard at work preparing its Constitution and Policies, opening its bank account and arranging insurance.
In addition the Community Garden received a generous donation from the Reverend Vanessa Hope-Bell in memory of her son Joel.
As a result on the morning of Saturday February 2nd the first actual action in the Garden will take place. Two varieties of apple, Sunset – a good cropping eater and Tin yr Wydd (The Goose’s Bottom) – a local variety of cooker will be planted. Some locally sourced native bulbs will also be dug in.
Everyone is welcome to get involved, help out or just come and have a look and a chat.
The Garden is for everyone so don’t be shy.
