Cwm Harry have a reputation in Mid Wales for its passion about waste reduction and turning food waste into high nutrient compost for growers. What people know less perhaps is that Cwm Harry also has a passion for growing local food and the Get-Growing project, funded by the national lottery was a result of nearly three years of hard work developing a garden at the old compost factory on the Vastre estate.
So now we have established a public accessible space for growing in Newtown as part of our commitments via the Get-Growing project we are seeking to do the same for Llanidloes. Work is already underway clearing the site for the garden and Emma Maxwell have been leading a local team of volunteers over the last few weeks.
Next stage is to come up with a design for the garden, and we are running the design process as a 5 day course which will mainly be based at the Pen Dinas garden in Newtown. Part of this includes a Public Consultation with local residents and potential garden stakeholders, which will take place on Wednesday 25th September.
Please Get In touch if you would like to contribute to this process. This is open to any one in the Llanidloes area who would like to help shape the garden design to better meet local needs.
