Beautiful organic flower, fruit and vegetable garden in the Ceiriog Valley.


Using Organic Permaculture principles, this community garden in the beautiful Ceiriog Valley is a physical, spiritual and emotional response to climate change and the problems facing the natural world. It is created as a local sustainable fruit, vegetable and conservation initiative, where local people, with or without any experience, have an opportunity to grow food.

Following the contours of the hillside we have created four terraces from wood coppiced on site and local recycled materials forming a natural amphitheatre around our social area and a practical example of sustainability. Rainwater is harvested from higher up the hillside and waters our produce by gravity. The garden is at 1000ft above sea level and has a South-East aspect. An edible forest garden is now under way and we provide a home to native honey bees. 

The work on the site is primarily voluntary the produce is shared between those who are involved. We are working towards sustainability of the garden and a balance of produce to members and for sale.

The garden is open to members, volunteers and ad hoc visitors of all ages and abilities every Thursday from 10am to 5pm.  We enjoy a shared, vegetarian organic lunch, regular skill share session and all members take home their fair share of garden offerings. Monday  is when we focus on developing our individual awareness of the gardens needs and is our main day for harvest and distribution of our produce.

We run workshops and our vegetables, fruit, edible flowers and salad are sold at local shops and businesses.

At a national level the the project has been supported by Garden Organic (formerly the Henry Doubleday Research Association), Environment Wales and Keep Wales Tidy.
