Tyfu Ceredigion (‘Growing Ceredigion’) is an initiative of the Ceredigion Local Nature Partnership, managed by Ecodyfi, a bilingual independent development trust delivering sustainable community regeneration in the Dyfi Valley and beyond.
The project has received support from the Cynnal y Cardi LEADER grant scheme, funded through the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the Welsh Government and the European Union.
Beginning with a launch event in Penparcau last November, the project’s aim was to bring gardeners together so that they can exchange ideas, share best practice and coordinate their activities.
The Nature Partnership is keen to see more community food growing because it’s a great way to create and support habitats for wildlife. It’s also good for our mental health to be out in nature…Rachel Auckland, project coordinator
Following its launch last year, a number of follow-on events have taken place this year including:
There are so many great projects and we want to put them in touch with each other.Rachel Auckland, project coordinator
An important output of the project will be a directory of sites and organisations which will enable the network to carry on functioning once the project concluded last month.
If you would like to have your garden or organisation listed in the public directory, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
