The Lower Rhymney "Our Space"  Community Agroforestry Area

The story so far... 

This is a truly amazing Community opportunity  and members of the community have already identified activities that could be taking place  - We have also had support from local craft people  who want to be involved in supporting the local community to develop the area in a way that offers the most community benefits 

  • Willow beds and craft and fencing opportunities 

  • Coppice activities could lead to local groups and individuals developing the skills needed to create  Hurdles, Fencing, and craft-based items - You could be engaged in this for fun, leisure, or as a community activity 

  • A multi-use community hub  - What activities would you like to see going on there?  Community cooking classes,  A community fridge of food club, 

The vision - this sets out the potential of the area

Initial consultation period 2022 - 23 
 
Soil Association  Visit and support  -   skilled craft makers  - Hatton Willow & Cottage Coppicing  have surveyed the area and have provided input  on how to create and manage willow beds and coppice areas
