Fruit for all At Machynlleth - Transition Bro Ddyfi Trawsnewid

Open to all who would like to take part, the project will involve people coming together to learn about growing, planting and caring for their trees and sharing the harvest.

Initially the group hopes to plant on the Bryn-y-Gog estate. They have

delivered a questionnaire to all the estate households and had meetings with Powys County Council, the town council and the Tenants Participation Panel.  Response from the meetings and resident consultation has been really positive. They are in the process of further consultation and applying for funding.

On October 15th there was an afternoon of fun events on the Bryn-y-Gog estate. People chatted about where and what they might grow. There was face painting, and a beautiful tree collage of all the fruits the children would like to see.  The afternoon finished with a brilliant juggling show. Everyone enjoyed the home baked crumble, cakes and fresh fruit.
