We’re hosting a Have a Grow Day

Address: Bro Rhiwen

Incredible Edible Rhiwlas is a community group based in Rhiwlas, Bangor, who want to use our community spaces to plant things that are beautiful, edible, and good for nature. We have several growing sites throughout the village, including the green, the park, the village hall, and the school. We hold weekly gardening sessions during term time, and working parties in the holidays. We also aim to hold events that bring people in the community together, and share our enthusiasm for growing things!

Facilities: Volunteering, Play area, Wildlife area
Accessible? No
Has livestock?

We will be gathered at Bro Rhiwen green, half way up the hill on the main road through Rhiwlas. The village tour will be starting from here too.
There's a bus stop on Bro Rhiwen (on the 85 Bangor-Llanberis route), and spaces to park along the main road.

Toilets: No
What events and activities do you have planned for the day?

From 2pm on the green we will have a stall with information and pictures of our project, celebrating all the hard work we've done since we began last year... We will be making bunting to go around the wildflower areas on the green, and other ad-hoc, nature-based crafting activities for all ages. Cyfeillion Rhiwlas will be joining us on the green. We may even have refreshments! :)
At 3pm we'll have a walk around our other planting sites in the village (currently the park and the school) to show off what we've done so far, with plenty of opportunities to chat and find out more...

Will you be open on the day?

We will be open from 2pm on the day, with a manned stall and craft activities on Bro Rhiwen green, in the middle of Rhiwlas, and a scheduled tour of the other village planting sites.
