2014 will be the year of the greenhouse! We’ve removed the old fruit cage, leaving enough space to give our greenhouse a prime position in the garden. We still need to level the ground slightly, but by March the greenhouse should be fully installed.
Visit Llangollen community garden on Saturday 18th May and see the launch our Bee World area, find out more about the garden and enjoy a BBQ in the sunshine!
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.

Things are going well at the garden, and the new year promises to be even more exciting. Why not join us?!
What a brilliant effort at the garden. See photos below or on Facebook.
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!
It has been an exciting time at the garden… After a successful information evening, we have new volunteers, have cleared a large area and have added more detail to our garden plan.
Three community garden volunteers attended a two day permaculture course at the Garth Community Garden – they brought back many new ideas for the garden plan. The plan is really developing now, but it still needs input, especially from you experienced gardeners out there!
We have started removing tree stumps and roots from the site. This has been hard work for our volunteers, but nothing they cannot manage – we intend to remove those roots remaining over the next few weeks.
The site is teeming with wildlife, during the Keep Wales Tidy ‘Wild Weekend’ (27-28th October) we intend to build 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!
Gardening sessions run every weekend, and on selected evenings during the week. Get in touch if you are interested in in joining us – click here!
Llangollen community garden sits in a easily accessed location, close to Plas Newydd.
The garden has been set up with the aim of providing an opportunity for local people, groups and schools to grow their own food and engage with nature. It is also hope that as the very practical and positive project develops, links within the community will be strengthened. Produce from the garden will be shared out amongst those involved, and any surplus donated at the time.
The first few working sessions establishing access and beginning clearance, as well as making plans for the future. Planting will start next year, but currently the area is very overgrown and so there is still a large amount of clearing to take place.
Working sessions run every Saturday morning from 10.00 – 12.00. Sessions are also organised for evenings during the week. Access to the site is restricted to these working sessions.
We would love to hear from anyone who might be interested in getting involved with the garden. Perhaps you would like to help clear the site? Or perhaps you would be interested in helping to design or plant the garden?
If you would like to find out more or attend one of our sessions please get in touch via our contact page [Other contact and details included in offline version].
