Aberystwyth Community Farm Project

A group of 20 local people are looking for land to set up a community farm near Aberystwyth.

The group hopes to give local people without land the opportunity to grow their own food as part of an environmentally-conscious co-operative and then plans to teach others, particularly schoolchildren, about the benefits of homegrown food and how to produce it. Similar schemes currently exist in Newtown, Wrexham, Cardiff and Swansea (pictured).

The group are looking for a site within five miles of Aberystwyth. They’d welcome any offers of land or donations for the project. They can be contacted at

Tomorrow (Wednesday) a conference of similar groups around Mid-Wales is being held in Borth.
