We are delighted to announce that our gardens at Creuddyn enterprise centre are currently undergoing an exciting redesign.
They are being transformed into a climate change resilient edible growing space by local award winning journalist, author, trainer and designer, Kim Stoddart.
After consultation with local community stakeholders, the gardens will include a range of edible fruit and vegetables and a composting and wildlife area. They will make use of locally sourced gravel, lots of perennial and pick and come again vegetables, herbs and leaves, featuring also apple tree and soft fruit areas.
They are being designed to provide an attractive yet low maintenance, productive space for the Creuddyn enterprise centre. They will also offer produce picking opportunities for the local community food bank, with help from our enthusiastic gardening volunteers and others.
Julia Lim from Bwyd Bendigedig Llambed and Incredible Edible said:
“The food bank. we are excited about the possibility of our clients being able to pick some extra-fresh produce to add to what we provide, and also at other times. Also, it will be lovely to have a community garden in town where people can see how to grow food in a very low maintenance and climate- conscious way that reduces the need for watering.”
We are aiming to launch the new gardens in mid June (weather depending). More news and images soon.
