  • TRANSATLANTIC TRADE & INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP petition

    Can we encourage as many as possible to sign and/or organise petitions - and if possible to attend the "Day of Action" at the Carmarthen Guildhall on Saturday 30th August at 10am.

    If the TTIP goes ahead, as is being discreetly negotiated at present, it will make billions for the US global corporations and ruin our society, economy and environment in the process.

Get stuck in with Newtown's community garden

Volunteer Wednesdays - get involved and Get Growing!

So we have finally moved to the new garden at Coleg Powys, we are on the college campus, turn off the roundabout by the college/ Theatre Hafren and right before the college main entrance and we are first left and located in the bungalow called Pen Dinas. Emma will be there from 10 am this morning for our first chance to get stuck into the garden and to start making sense of the space. The garden’s main features have been designed as part of a garden design course we ran in the summer and will include polytunnels, a relocated roundhouse and intensive growing area, forest garden, wildlife areas as well a community growing area and micro allotment plots. We have stuck closely to our organic and permaculture gardening principles and it is a great chance for anyone to learn how to approach developing such a space.

 

Anyone interested in welcome to just come along on a Wednesday between 10 and 4.00 pm or cantact us via the website if you need any info before hand. For groups, special needs and training opportunites do please contact us before hand. Details:
