Gardd-Sadwrn – feedback from the community meeting

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


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?

Happy to provide mushroom logs + Bed Shitake, Oyster, Garden Giant
