Project Focus  

Glasbren CIC

Abel Pearson, Director & Veg Grower

Glasbren, the welsh language word for ‘sapling’, is a non-profit community enterprise dedicated to health, healing and regeneration. We are a growing collective of peasant farmers, natural builders, herbalists, wellness practitioners  and permaculture educators based at our peaceful, abundant and ecologically-vibrant market garden in the rolling hills of West Wales. 

We grow many different varieties of seasonal veg, fruit, herbs and salads to feed our 50 CSA veg box members each week and support low-income families through our solidarity veg boxes. We have a fantastic team of dedicated volunteers, and run seasonal community events, courses & workshops. 

We want to harness the power of growing food, together and with nature to inspire, educate and communicate the value of food, sustainable living and true health, in our own bodies, in our environment and in vibrant, authentic and resilient communities. 

The Edible Horticulture grant has given us a vital boost to be able to expand our veg box numbers and grow more veg with a packing shed extension and another polytunnel to meet the growing demand... 


Project News

Edible Cardiff 

We will be working hard with the Edible Cardiff network over the next few months to help organise the Spring Festival of Growing that will be taking place across Cardiff in April and May. If you would like to be involved in this or would like to gather some more information on the Edible Cardiff network and what they do, there is a meeting organised for early February, details of which can be found in the 'Events' section below.

CLAS Cymru

We have seen an upsurge in communities wanting to manage the spaces around them – largely community food growing projects seem to be the most popular. We have supported 71 community projects to date with their access to land and planning queries since April 2020. We have loved seeing our awardees share their plaques and certificates from our 2020 CLAS Awards, which was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Groups are in the process of applying for this year's award, and we will be celebrating their successes in March this year. Keep an eye on our social media pages for more updates soon!

CLAS Cymru has also been able to support Welcome To Our Woods, a community partnership to submit a planning application for community led controlled environment agriculture in the heart of Treherbert. Watch this space for the success of the ‘CropCycle’ project. 

Edible Horticulture

We had a fantastic response to this grant application, and the competition was high, but we are so pleased to announce that we are supporting 5 horticultural enterprises with capital support over the next 4 months aiming to increase production. The groups we will be supporting are: 

Glasbren CIC in Camarthenshire, Henbant Permaculture in Gwynedd, Troed y Rhiw Organics in Ceredigion, Angle Walled Garden in Pembrokeshire and Ash & Elm Horticulture in Powys - we will be sharing profiles of each project on our social media pages over the next few weeks, so keep an eye out for those! 

Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) 

Crop Cycle: Welsh Government fund the supply & installation of Controlled Environment Agriculture systems for the demonstration of community benefits across 4 sites in Wales 

Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) is a process that combines plant science, engineering and technology to optimise plant growing, plant quality and production efficiency to provide a truly sustainable system of food growing. To date the approaches to CEA have been vastly different, un-co-ordinated and largely un-supported. Through this pilot we will offer real growth potential at a scale that is impactful, replicable and delivers wider benefits for the region. 

This project, Crop Cycle, is being funded by the Welsh Government through the Foundational Economy Challenge Fund and we will be working with business and partners who are committed to the four pillars of the Economic Contract.  The project will provide a test bed for Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA), in the community setting – the very heart of our Foundational Economy. The project is being led by Social Farms & Gardens supported by Welsh Government’s Horticulture Cluster group and NutriWales CEA Special Interest Group.

Orchards for Wales Project

This was probably the busiest period of activity for the Orchard project staff and especially for the groups on the ground as we pushed projects to allocate as much of the spend as they could. Final items of equipment were sourced and ordered. Trees started to arrive and be planted on sites and other preparations took place. 

One of our Orchard sites in Aberfan managed to receive some significant news coverage early in the new year about the project. Click here to read more about their wonderful work. 

We have also designed and had printed 70 A3 signs, enough for one for each of the physical sites, aimed at connecting each of the sites together under the project. These have been printed on a new ‘fully recyclable’ single material board and we are in the process of posting these out to the sites. Keep an eye on our social media channels for a glipse of these signs as they start to be delivered! 

Orchards Resource Booklet 

We have helped re-vamp (In partnership with Flintshire LA) ‘An Introduction to Orchard Management’ This has been fully translated and now forms a single dual language resource. It has been both digitally created and physically printed. We have sufficient stocks of this excellent resource to post 10 to each group we have worked with. In addition, we are posting several copies to each local authority bio-diversity officers and or Estates managers. These are being sent to each group along with a short book written and produced in Wales on ‘Pruning’. These resources are hosted on our website so please click here to download your copy today!

We’ve committed to all our orchard sites for this year but we’d like to develop this work further in the future so please do get in touch if you have potential sites. Email: orchard@farmgarden.org.uk

National School Farms Awards Guidance 2021

We are thrilled to once again launch the National School Farms Awards, 2021. This is the 4th year we have run the awards with the Royal Agricultural University. The winners will be announced during the School Farms Network Conference on 3rd July. The National School Farms Awards 2021 celebrate the outstanding achievements of schools, teachers and students who have farms included as part of their education provision. Multiple award categories aim to recognise the diversity of the types and uses of school farms and land based education across the UK.

Entry

To apply for an Award please email your case study to ianem@farmgarden.org.uk by Friday 14th May 2021 clearly stating which award you are applying for. You should refer to the criteria for each Award on the following pages to help you complete your farm’s case
study. You may apply for multiple Awards, but please note that separate case studies must be completed for each. Video links (e.g. within a website, or Dropbox) or file transfer (using WeTransfer or other free mechanism) may be used.

Last call for our 'COVID-19 Hero' Award Nominations

When the COVID-19 restrictions hit the UK in March 2020 we took the decision to put our 40th Anniversary Awards, sponsored by McClarrons Ltd, on hold. We received around 200 entries across the seven categories and it was wonderful to hear about all the amazing individuals, organisations and activities supporting people to connect with nature throughout the UK. If 2020 has taught us one thing, it's that activities can be delivered in alternative ways, so we are planning a virtual awards ceremony to reveal the winners of all seven categories in March this year. Winners will be invited to a reception at the House of Lords once a rescheduled date has been confirmed. We have also decided to add one additional award category to recognise the incredible impact that your organisations have had on their local communities, beneficiaries and wider issues.

Use this form to nominate the organisation/group/individual that you believe deserves our 'COVID-19 Hero Award'.

Growing Teachers Training

Start the New Year with a new goal! Our Growing Teachers project is all about helping you to help your school grow. We are focused on inspiring, supporting and empowering teachers, support staff, independent practitioners and volunteers to develop and run a school growing and/ or farming project successfully and sustainably.

The course is open to teaching staff, practitioners and volunteers across the UK and an online application form must be filled out to register your interest by 31st January 2021

Ffocws ar Brosiect  

Glasbren CIC

Abel Pearson, Cyfarwyddwr a Thyfwr Llysiau

Mae Glasbren, y gair Cymraeg am 'sapling', yn fenter gymunedol ddi-elw sy'n ymroddedig i iechyd, iachâd ac adfywio. Rydym yn gyfunol gynyddol o ffermwyr heddychol, adeiladwyr naturiol, llysieuwyr, ymarferwyr ffynhonnau ac addysgwyr permaddiwylliant wedi'u lleoli yn ein gardd farchnad heddychlon, gyffredin ac ecolegol fywiog ym mryniau rholio Gorllewin Cymru. 

Rydym yn tyfu llawer o wahanol fathau o lysiau tymhorol, ffrwythau, perlysiau a saladau i fwydo ein 50 aelod bocs llysiau CSA bob wythnos a chefnogi teuluoedd incwm isel drwy ein blychau llysiau undod. Mae gennym dîm gwych o wirfoddolwyr ymroddedig, ac rydym yn cynnal digwyddiadau cymunedol tymhorol, cyrsiau a gweithdai. 

Rydym am harneisio pŵer tyfu bwyd, ynghyd a chyda natur i ysbrydoli, addysgu a chyfleu gwerth bwyd, byw'n gynaliadwy a gwir iechyd, yn ein cyrff ein hunain, yn ein hamgylchedd ac mewn cymunedau bywiog, dilys a gwydn. 

Mae'r grant Garddwriaeth Bwytadwy wedi rhoi hwb hanfodol i ni allu ehangu rhifau ein blychau llysiau a thyfu mwy o llysiau gydag estyniad sied bacio a polydwnnel arall i ateb y galw cynyddol... 


Newyddion Prosiect

CLAS Cymru

Rydym wedi gweld cynnydd mewn cymunedau sydd am reoli'r gofodau o'u cwmpas – mae'n ymddangos mai prosiectau tyfu bwyd cymunedol yn bennaf yw'r rhai mwyaf poblogaidd. Rydym wedi cefnogi 71 o brosiectau cymunedol hyd yma gyda'u mynediad i ymholiadau tir a chynllunio ers mis Ebrill 2020. Rydym wedi bod wrth ein bodd yn gweld ein pobl sy'n mynd heibio yn rhannu eu placiau a'u tystysgrifau o'n Gwobrau CLAS 2020, a amharwyd gan bandemig COVID-19. Mae grwpiau wrthi'n gwneud cais am y wobr eleni, a byddwn yn dathlu eu llwyddiannau ym mis Mawrth eleni. Cadwch lygad ar ein tudalennau cyfryngau cymdeithasol am fwy o ddiweddariadau yn fuan!

Mae CLAS Cymru hefyd wedi gallu cefnogi 'Croeso i'n Coed', partneriaeth gymunedol i gyflwyno cais cynllunio ar gyfer amaethyddiaeth amgylchedd dan reolaeth a arweinir gan y gymuned yng nghanol Treherbert. Gwyliwch y gofod hwn am lwyddiant y prosiect 'CylchCnwd'.  

Blasu Caerdydd

Byddwn yn gweithio'n galed gyda Blasu Caerdydd dros y misoedd nesaf i helpu i drefnu Gŵyl Dyfu'r Gwanwyn a fydd yn digwydd ledled Caerdydd ym mis Ebrill a mis Mai. Os hoffech fod yn rhan o hyn neu os hoffech gasglu rhagor o wybodaeth am rwydwaith Blasu Caerdydd a'r hyn a wnânt, trefnir cyfarfod ar gyfer dechrau mis Chwefror, ac mae manylion y rhain i'w gweld yn yr adran 'Digwyddiadau' isod. 

Cliciwch yma am fwy o wybodaeth. 

Garddwriaeth Bwytadwy

Cawsom ymateb gwych i'r cais hwn am grant, ac yr oedd y gystadleuaeth yn uchel, ond yr ydym mor falch o gyhoeddi ein bod yn cefnogi 5 menter arddwriaethol gyda chymorth cyfalaf dros y 4 mis nesaf gyda'r nod o gynyddu cynhyrchiant. Y grwpiau y byddwn yn eu cefnogi yw: 

CIC Glasbren yn Sir Gaerfyrddin, Permaddiwylliant Henbant yng Ngwynedd, Troed y Rhiw Organics yng Ngheredigion, Gardd Furiog Angle yn Sir Benfro ac Garddwriaeth Ash & Elm ym Mhowys - byddwn yn rhannu proffiliau o bob prosiect ar ein tudalennau cyfryngau cymdeithasol dros yr wythnosau nesaf, felly cadwch lygad allan am y rheiny!

Amaethyddiaeth Amgylcheddol Reoledig

Cylch Cnwd: Llywodraeth Cymru yn ariannu'r gwaith o gyflenwi a gosod systemau Amaethyddiaeth yr Amgylchedd a Reolir ar gyfer arddangos manteision cymunedol ar draws 4 safle yng Nghymru 

Mae Amaethyddiaeth yr Amgylchedd a Reolir (CEA) yn broses sy'n cyfuno gwyddoniaeth planhigion, peirianneg a thechnoleg i sicrhau'r twf gorau posibl mewn planhigion, ansawdd planhigion ac effeithlonrwydd cynhyrchu er mwyn darparu system wirioneddol gynaliadwy o dyfu bwyd. Hyd yma, mae'r dulliau o ymdrin â CEA wedi bod yn wahanol iawn, heb eu cydgysylltu ac heb eu cefnogi i raddau helaeth. Drwy'r peilot hwn byddwn yn cynnig potensial twf gwirioneddol ar raddfa sy'n effeithiol, yn cael ei hatgyblu ac yn sicrhau manteision ehangach i'r rhanbarth. 

Mae'r prosiect hwn, Crop Cycle, yn cael ei ariannu gan Lywodraeth Cymru drwy Gronfa Her yr Economi Sylfaenol a byddwn yn gweithio gyda busnesau a phartneriaid sydd wedi ymrwymo i bedair colofn y Contract Economaidd.  Bydd y prosiect yn darparu gwely prawf ar gyfer Amaethyddiaeth yr Amgylchedd a Reolir (CEA), yn y gymuned – calon ein Heconomi Sylfaenol. Mae'r prosiect yn cael ei arwain gan Ffermydd a Gerddi Cymdeithasol gyda chefnogaeth grŵp Clwstwr Garddwriaeth Llywodraeth Cymru a Grŵp Diddordeb Arbennig CEA NutriWales.

Prosiect Perllannau i Gymru

Mae'n debyg mai hwn oedd y cyfnod prysuraf o weithgarwch i staff prosiect Orchard ac yn enwedig i'r grwpiau ar lawr gwlad wrth i ni wthio prosiectau i ddyrannu cymaint o'r gwariant ag y gallent. Roedd eitemau terfynol o offer yn dod o ffynonellau ac yn cael eu harchebu. Dechreuodd coed gyrraedd a ellir eu plannu ar safleoedd a pharatoadau eraill. 

Llwyddodd un o'n safleoedd Perllannau yn Aberfan i dderbyn darllediadau newyddion sylweddol yn gynnar yn y flwyddyn newydd am y prosiect. Cliciwch yma i ddarllen mwy am eu gwaith gwych. 

Rydym hefyd wedi dylunio ac wedi argraffu 70 o arwyddion A3, digon ar gyfer un ar gyfer pob un o'r safleoedd ffisegol, gyda'r nod o gysylltu pob un o'r safleoedd gyda'i gilydd o dan y prosiect. Mae'r rhain wedi'u hargraffu ar fwrdd deunydd sengl 'cwbl ailgylchadwy' newydd ac rydym wrthi'n postio'r rhain allan i'r safleoedd. Cadwch lygad ar ein sianeli cyfryngau cymdeithasol am glipse o'r arwyddion hyn wrth iddynt ddechrau cael eu danfon! 

Llyfryn Adnoddau Perllannau 

Rydym wedi helpu i ail-gladdu (Mewn partneriaeth ag ALl Sir y Fflint) 'Cyflwyniad i Reoli Perllannau' Mae hwn wedi'i gyfieithu'n llawn ac mae bellach yn ffurfio un adnodd iaith ddeuol. Mae wedi'i greu'n ddigidol a'i argraffu'n gorfforol. Mae gennym ddigon o stociau o'r adnodd rhagorol hwn i ôl-10 i bob grŵp rydym wedi gweithio gydag ef. Yn ogystal, rydym yn postio sawl copi at swyddogion bio-amrywiaeth pob awdurdod lleol a/neu reolwyr Ystadau. Mae'r rhain yn cael eu hanfon at bob grŵp ynghyd â llyfr byr wedi'i ysgrifennu a'i gynhyrchu yng Nghymru ar 'Tocio'. Mae'r adnoddau hyn yn cael eu cynnal ar ein gwefan felly cliciwch yma i lawrlwytho eich copi heddiw!

 
Rydym wedi ymrwymo i'n holl safleoedd perllannau ar gyfer eleni ond hoffem ddatblygu'r gwaith hwn ymhellach yn y dyfodol felly cysylltwch os oes gennych safleoedd posibl. E-bost: orchard@farmgarden.org.uk

Galwad olaf am ein Henwebiadau Gwobrau 'Arwr COVID-19'

Pan darodd cyfyngiadau COVID-19 y DU ym mis Mawrth 2020, gwnaethom y penderfyniad i ohirio ein 40fed Gwobrau Pen-blwydd, a noddwyd gan McClarrons Ltd. Cawsom tua 200 o geisiadau ar draws y saith categori ac roedd yn wych clywed am yr holl unigolion, sefydliadau a gweithgareddau anhygoel sy'n cefnogi pobl i gysylltu â natur ledled y DU. Os yw 2020 wedi dysgu un peth i ni, mae'n golygu y gellir cyflwyno gweithgareddau mewn ffyrdd eraill, felly rydym yn cynllunio seremoni wobrwyo rithwir i ddatgelu enillwyr pob un o'r saith categori ym mis Mawrth eleni. Gwahoddir enillwyr i dderbyniad yn Nhŷ'r Arglwyddi unwaith y bydd dyddiad wedi'i aildrefnu wedi'i gadarnhau. Rydym hefyd wedi penderfynu ychwanegu un categori gwobr ychwanegol i gydnabod yr effaith anhygoel y mae eich sefydliadau wedi'i chael ar eu cymunedau lleol, eu buddiolwyr a'u materion ehangach.

Defnyddiwch y ffurflen hon i enwebu'r sefydliad/grŵp/unigolyn sydd, yn eich barn chi, yn haeddu ein 'Gwobr Arwr COVID-19'.

Cyfleoedd Ariannu

The Landfill Disposals Tax

Rhaglen ariannu Llywodraeth Cymru yw hon a reolir gan CGGC. Mae'r cynllun yn cefnogi prosiectau cymunedol ac amgylcheddol lleol mewn ardaloedd yr effeithir arnynt gan waredu gwastraff i safleoedd tirlenwi. 

Mae pumed cylch y cynllun Cymunedau Treth Gwaredu Tirlenwi bellach yn derbyn ceisiadau am grantiau rhwng £5,000 a £49,999 ar gyfer prosiectau sy'n dechrau o fis Mawrth 2021. 

Gellir dyfarnu grant hefyd i un prosiect Cenedlaethol Arwyddocaol y flwyddyn gyda gwerth rhwng £50,000 a £250,000. 

Y dyddiad cau ar gyfer ceisiadau yw 18 Ionawr 2021 am 23:59. Noder bod dwy ffurflen gais ar wahân, un ar gyfer y prif grantiau ac un ar gyfer y grant cenedlaethol arwyddocaol. 

Mae'r ffordd y cyflwynir ceisiadau yn newid – mae CGGC wedi gwrando ar ariannu ymgeiswyr ac mewn ymgynghoriad â'r sector, mae wedi datblygu Porth Ceisiadau Aml-bryn newydd. Mae'r llwyfan gwe hawdd ei ddefnyddio newydd hwn yn gwneud cais am grantiau drwy CGGC yn brofiad llawer symlach a hawdd ei ddefnyddio. 

Er mwyn cyflwyno cais am gyllid, bydd angen i chi gofrestru gyda Phorth Ymgeisio Aml-purpose CGGC (MAP). Os ydych wedi cofrestru gyda MAP o'r blaen, gallwch fewngofnodi drwy roi eich enw defnyddiwr a'ch cyfrinair ar y sgrin gartref.
