Welcome to our Gardening Club Rhydlewis and District Gardening Club has been around since the time of Adam and Eve. In fact, it is believed that one of our members planted and tended the very apple tree that gave rise to the pair being expelled from the garden!!

Whether this urban myth is true or not, the club is here to encourage, improve and extend the members' knowledge of all branches of horticulture. It is open to everyone and new members are all always welcome to come along.

Our activities during the year include a varied programme of talks and social events, summer garden visits, a plant sale, social gatherings/bbq and an annual open show in August.

Rydlewis & District Gardening Club Meeting Tuesday 29th Oct. 
Visit to the Permaculture Farm Trust in Penboyr from 2.0 pm.

Dear member,
We do hope you’re able to come on this afternoon farm visit. Please note that due to the limited amount of parking space at the Permaculture Farm (5 - 6 cars), we are meeting at the Rhydlewis community hall at 1.30 pm so that we can car share for the journey.

However, in case anyone does wish to go directly to the farm, then the directions are as follows from Newcastle Emlyn:

Take the A484 going east towards Carmarthen.  After about 3 miles ( in the hamlet of Pentrecagal ), turn right towards Drefach Felindre.  Follow the main road into Drefach Felindre and on through the village and over the humpback bridge and onwards (about 200 yards) when you will see a left turn up a very steep hill.  Take this left turn and continue up the hill and continue until the hamlet of Penboyr.  Continue through Penboyr until you reach a red telephone box on your left.  Directly opposite the telephone box (on your right) is a very narrow unmarked track leading down to the farm.  The track surface is very uneven and stony so care is needed especially if you have a low ground clearance on your vehicle.At the end of the track (about 200 yards), turn left through an open gate and after about 30 yards there will be a small parking area. Some parking is available opposite the village hall in Penboyr but this will mean walking down he track to the farm.

The terrain of the farm is fairly uneven and could be slippery in some areas so it may be appropriate to wear strong footware or wellies and possibly some warm rainproof clothing, just in case of bad weather conditions.  Hopefully the sun will be shining.

Should have any questions, then please give Nina or myself a ring on 01239 851096 or email us at ninahare@yahoo.com. Look forward to seeing you all soon
