The Community Garden
Llangollen community garden sits in a easily accessed location, close to Plas Newydd. The community garden was initially established on this site in 2012. Anyone is welcome to become a member, take part in gardening sessions and enjoy sharing this beautiful area of land.
> To develop a high quality organic food source within Llangollen.
> To provide opportunities for local people, groups and schools to directly engage with the natural world and food production.
> To help build community links by bringing together individuals and locals groups.
We are sticking to organic principles, and where possible making use of permaculture methods.
Wildlife on site
We are passionate about wildlife and want to design the garden and work on site which is as friendly to wildlife as possible.
The garden site used to be a working kitchen garden over 20 years ago, before falling into a state of neglect. The site is owned by Denbighshire county council, who gave permission for the land to be turned back into a productive community garden.
We’ve got loads of plans and ideas for the future. Here is just a flavour…
> We’d love to see the garden producing enough so that we can provide for all members and local charities.
> Invite local schools and youth groups to have a strong role in developing and benefiting from the garden.
> The current site offers an opportunity to develop a small hydro electric scheme.
