Open Your Garden or Help on the Day
Thanks to everyone who has thrown themselves into this event. The meeting held in the Reading Room on the 10/02/2020 was very well attended, we have around 17 gardens submitted for opening on the day which will help raise funds for our beloved and well used Reading Room. We are looking for volunteers on the day to help steward – if you are interested please contact Lizzie (email@example.com 07803 279558). The next meeting will be 11th May 2020, 7pm in The Reading Room.
So if you enjoy looking around gardens to get new ideas then this is your chance! Come and walk around Llansadwrn gardens…all different…some large, some small, everyone full of nooks and crannies, some with borders and beds filled to the brim with blooming plants, others with pots and window boxes, a few with orchards, a couple with ponds and bog gardens, some with vegetable plots but all helping and encouraging nature to thrive and develop.
A wildlife habitat hunt to engage children, refreshments for all in the Reading Room and a plant stall-a perfect day out in a wonderful village. 10am-5pm. Tickets £5 available on day or on sale beforehand at various outlets. For more information please phone or email
The date for the open garden is the 20th June 2020.

A meeting was had for anyone from Llansadwrn interested in opening up their garden for the 2020 fundraiser for our Reading Room.
The Reading Room heaters are in desperate need of replacement, they are ancient enough to have come from the Ark and use enough energy to have cause that flood. So the good people of Llansadwrn are being asked to open up their gardens for a FUN open garden.
Organiser Lizzie Johnson was keen to emphasise the fun bit of the garden, so it’s NOT a competition. We should not be stressed about it, we shouldn’t spend the winter panicing about it and a number of people present at the meeting were keen to point out how wildlife friendly their gardens were by being a bit messy.
We are also focussing largely on gardens in Llansadwrn as we want to keep people out of their cars but people will be able to purchase a map on the day and we are looking into how we can get people to the outlyer gardens with talk of a walk round and a charabanc to drive groups to the outliers. All being investigated and ideas/volunteers welcome.
We are also planning to do a wildlife habitat hunt- so gardeners get to pick what wildlife habitat visiting children have to search for in the garden – the notion of flags with a cut out of the creature as garden markers was suggested (instead of balloons to cut out plastic).
Cakes and refreshments will be provided at the Reading Room and it was suggested that the pub could be open in the afternoon to the weary garden viewers.
If you would like to register your garden please fill in the form below.
The next meeting about the gardens will be 7pm Tuesday Feb 4th at the Reading Room.
The date for the open garden is the 20th June 2020.
Gardd Gymunedol Llansadwrn Community Garden will be open on Saturday 13th July as part of the Big Lunch celebrations.
