|The main growing season has come to an end, so this Saturday 26th October we’ll be covering the beds with shredded comfrey and straw and to keep them weed free and fertilized over the winter.|
Come along and help out between 10.30am-12.30pm this Saturday 26th October. Tea break is usually around 11.30ish – All welcome 😉
This activity is weather dependent, but generally we’ll only cancel if we get persistent rain. Check Facebook for updates if you’re unsure.
We had a wonderful time pressing apples at the community garden. Over 50 people came along to help out, there was music, laughter and lots of apples and of course juice! Great teamwork on the day meant we got through a tremedous number of apples, producing juice to drink and take away. We also replenished our compost bays with the apple mush. Of course we also left plenty of apples on our tree for the local wildlife.
Many more images are available on our Facebook page. Many thanks go to everyone who came along to help out, brought apples, the band – The Glaaswalkers, and North Wales Wildlife Trust for lending us the pressing equipment.

The day starts at 10am with a visit from Susan Elan Jones, who will be helping launch our new Bee World area. The BBQ will be serving food at around 1pm, with the day wrapping up around 5pm.
On October 27th we will be taking part in the Keep Wales Tidy ‘Wild Weekend’ – We will be building some enhanced habitat zones. We will use material found on the site to create brash piles. Brash piles are great for wildlife and will help mark out some of the areas on site. If you like wildlife, or just want to help, this will be a great weekend to get involved!
