We are developing a community garden with sensory features, vegetable planters and bee-friendly plants and inviting all sections of the community to join with us. We hope that it will be a place for people, young and old to come and enjoy the outdoors, reconnect with nature, to learn, and to find a place to reflect.
Our plans include: a sensory garden trail, raised beds for seasonal vegetables, wheelchair friendly path, seating area, wildflower area, outdoor learning space, bug hotels and opportunities for learning for young and old, such as activity days.
Salem Community Garden is located behind Salem Chapel on Salem Lane in Tonteg.
Local bus routes are #100 (Pontypridd/Royal Glamorgan Hospital) and #400 (Cardiff/Gwaumiskin)
There is on street parking locally but it is very limited outside the chapel, so if coming by car, please park in the village and walk up Salem Lane (beside Hollybush Inn).
What events and activities do you have planned for the day?
Painting flower pots and planting seeds
Make bee/bug hotel from recycling
DIY bird feeders
