The 1st of August will be our Lammas celebration and after the success of our moth day we’d like to celebrate butterflies by joining in with this fabulous butterfly count. Put the date in your diaries and there will be more details to follow! http://www.bigbutterflycount.org/
Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June 2016
Come to Dyfed Permacuture Farm from 6pm on Saturday to help set up the moth trap. Bring food to cook on the fire, stories to share and instruments to serenade the moths with! Camping available, donation payable to the trust.
We will be opening the moth trap at 10am on Sunday morning to see what we’ve caught and will identify them with local moth expert. Last time we set up a trap we caught an amazing array of species, from ones so camoflaged that they looked lke sticks to bright greens, pinks and golds, as stunning as any butterfly
. . . stay for moth crafts and activities and a bring and share solstice picnic.
You are welcome to come for all or part of the celebration. It would be great if you could let us know you are planning on coming.
We will be making Japanese Koinobori windsocks and circle dancing before the traditional May Pole mayhem!
All welcome, we ask £3-£5 per family to cover costs. Croeso Cynnes i Bawb!
The next All Year Round will be on January the 31st 2 – 5pm. At Candlemas/Imbolc we will bring some light to the darkness and tempt spring to begin stirring in her deep dark lair. . .
In a cross-cultural celebration activities will include: making some Chinese spin drums so we can make some noise and wake up the spring, telling Monkey stories for the Chinese year of the Monkey, making torches to bring some light to the darkness
Plus a camp fire, chat, running and general fun and games!
The next Trust Volunteer workday will be on Sunday 14th February, 10.30 – 4pm. We will be continuing with the hedge laying we started last month.
Please contact us if you are planning on coming (so we can let you know if we have to cancel due to bad weather), bring some work gloves (we have tools you can borrow) and bring something to share for a delicious bring and share lunch.
