Fairwater Community Garden Project – Pave the Way July 2017

This beautiful, organic garden project is looking for volunteers. A couple of us were lucky enough to go and visit and have a look around. Ian, who runs the garden believes that there is space for all things so the slugs and snails get to share produce and space with bees, moths, frogs, toads, common lizards even a grass snake or two. There are too many types of plants to list and Ian was happy to guide us and explain the different areas. When we visited there was a solitary, delicate lotus flower on one of the ponds.

The project and its volunteers take an ‘everyone is welcome’ approach. As a long term volunteer himself, Ian values every minute of time anyone can give.  There are a variety of jobs that always need doing in the gardens such as pond management, pathway maintenance, woodworking as well as the horticultural side.

 

Even in the rain it was stunning.

If you want to visit, the community garden is off St Fagan’s Road, behind St Peter’s Church. Contact Jo on jo.h@vcscymru.org.uk for Ian’s contact details and / or more information.
