Garden Design

Flowers bringing beauty to community spaces

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.

Garden project – planting in Easter holidays

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.

Tin-yr-Wydd-apple

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.

Gardd-Sadwrn – feedback from the community meeting

Rhandir Garden Llansadwrn

As part of the community consultation on the Llansadwrn Garden project an open meeting was held at the Reading Room last Saturday morning.

Around thirty people attended and the idea of establishing a community garden/orchard in Llansadwrn was discussed in some depth.

Comments, suggestions and ideas came thick and fast. The meeting was very supportive of the idea and wanted the Rhandir to be a place that everyone in Llansadwrn could use, enjoy and be proud of.

The meeting was enthusiastic to get going as soon as possible and it was decided that a number of volunteers should take the project forward.

First of all we will get a Rhandir group set up and constituted and produce a development plan for the site for the Community Council to consider at their next meeting.

Comments from the feedback book and from the meeting (sic)

This is a brilliant idea, and will get people out& talking together as they work.

Lovely idea – fruit trees – easy maintenance – crop could be shared – scrumpy?

Wild play/forest school area fruit/forest garden

Great idea

An accessible path/s around the garden/orchard. Great idea!

Wonderful idea – another innovation to bring the community together.

What fun and a wonderful way to connect people in the village yet again in a wonderful environment. Jane

A fantastic wy to create community!! Looking forward to the Orchard as my garden is too small for fruit trees and I think the opportunity for local school to have “forest school” is brilliant!!

A fairy garden! Little doors on flower pots to help the flowers grow Claire .E.

Garden patch for growing fruits and vegetables. Lewis

Community plots ‘Rubarb’ herbs, Runnes ect.

Possibly register as a ‘community charity’ to obtain grants/help from local business.

Fabulous idea to have a garden

Maintaining hedge cutting is important.

Large trees on boundary are protected.

Barbeque area -fire pit

Childrens’ ‘patch’ or tubs.
Lean to for green wood working

Seating areas/meeting places

Hammock

Bird boxes Insect boxes

On rememberence day place little wooden crosses and grow poppies

Lay boundary hedge of native trees + lay it properly.

A place for children/people to go and make a wish (release some stress) Almost like a wishing well/calm think – space?
Also grow some vegetables.

Fruit trees also serve as memorials for local people.

Will it be down to the community to create the garden?

This would be a special way of bringing everyone together

Also we would love to see a few fairy doors at the bottom of some tree trunks, to get the kids imaginations going.

Brilliant idea – but concerned about practicalities eg. Rota for volunteers? Deciding what to grow? To fundraise?
