Flintshare Ffynnongroyw

The first work day on the Ffynnongroyw site, a wonderful turnout from the community and beyond.  It was quite impossible to believe that such a piece of neglected land covered in deep bramble could be transformed in an afternoon to be so clear!

Bring on the living rotavators:  Chickens!!  (pigs would be quicker, but harder to contain!)

Among the discoveries were LungwortLungwort (a great find, edible and medicinal), Watermint, Mentha Aquatica(of which some is now steeping my mug!) and an apple tree which has now been disengaged from the ash growing next to it!

November

This month sees the start of a great project in Ffynnongroyw.  We are embarking on a Community Supported Agriculture scheme on some waste land at the back of the church.  The land seems to lend itself towards a Forest Garden and already has well established Poplar trees, or more probably Aspens, Willow, Ash, and a whole lot of bramble.  The group has met on site once and is excited about getting started, first job – clearing the bramble away, then using chickens to rotavate the ground, there may even be some bees some time soon, all exciting times…
