Fruit for All continues to develop
If, like me, you've been wondering what they have been doing in Machyntlleth during the long winter slence, you'll be please to read this snippet from the welcome recent Bro Dyfi newsletter:
"For the past eighteen months, Abi Price has been woking relentlessly setting up the Fruit For All group, finding funds (our thanks to Dulas engineering, Keep Wales Tidy, Communities First), sorting out mountains of legal paperwork (drove her nuts, she said) before getting schoolchildren from Ysgol Gynradd and Ysgol Bro Ddyfi to join in, making hot spicy apple, smoothies and pressing fresh apple juice at the farmers market. Finally, Abi organised the actual planting of young fruit trees and bushes in the Bryn-Y-Gog area with the help of local people who attended in good numbers, braving the bitter cold for a noble cause."
Seed saving event coming up, TBA, and we are promised that an EVENT is brewing in the minds of TBD movers and shakers!
