Hedgerow restoration on a Volunteer Workday

Would you like to join us for our regular volunteer workdays at the Dyfed Permaculture Farm Trust?

The Trust has a 22 acre farm straddling the villages of Cwmpengraig and Penboyr. The farm comprises wildflower meadows and mixed grazing pasture bordered by mature hedgerows (particularly Laburnum), 3 acres of woodland, fruit and vegetable growing areas, permaculture inspired plantings and a multi-purpose wooden pole barn, compost toilets and solar showers. One of the ways that the land is managed is through our monthly workdays.

What We Do

We carry out a variety of activities on workdays. Past activities include hedge laying, fencing, coppicing, clearing and small building projects. It is a great chance for you to learn some valuable smallholding / permaculture skills in an informal setting or share those you already have, and help us develop the Trust land. Every workday includes a bring and share feast!
