Pencoed Community Farm
We are a group of ten enthusiastic families aiming to be self-sufficient. We meet once a week to grow organic vegetables and improve our lives, diets and our sense of community. Pencoed Community Garden started a few years ago after a core member gifted over a field to see if we could grow collectively. We began with just potatoes, but now have brassicas, raised beds, and an orchard. The project is such a success we have been able to set up a stall to sell excess produce, run pick-your-own open days during the harvest season and donate produce to charitable causes. Our next goal is to fund a poly tunnel so that we can grow and preserve even more. With this we aim to widen our impact within the community through education and learning opportunities for all.
