Community gardeners planning wild weekend

As part of Keep Wales Tidy’s Wild Weekend, Llangollen Community Garden is planning a special activity on Saturday, October 27.
Members will be building enhanced habitat zones using material found on their site to create brash piles.
Brash piles are great for wildlife and will help mark out some of the areas on site.
A group spokesman said: “If you like wildlife, or just want to help, this will be a great weekend to get involved.”

* Members of the Community Garden.
The community garden sits in a easily accessed location close to Plas Newydd.
It 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 hoped that as the 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 meant 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 so there is still a large amount of clearing to be done.

Working sessions run every Saturday morning from 10am-noon and are also organised for evenings during the week.

Access to the site is restricted to these working sessions.

The spokesman added: “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?

To find out more or attend one of the sessions get in touch with the group by e-mail at, or visit the website at
