This is such a positive project with loads of ideas such as no-dig food growing and involving communities from Swansea.
They have plans to create 7 areas of hazel coppice over the next 7 years. Coppiced wood is invaluable for building materials and for converting into bio-char to add to the soil. (The project is inspired by Ed Revill's growing project on South Gower and his biochar pioneering work).
Tuesdays have now been set as a weekly workday. It would be great to have a large group of people working together and sharing food and conversation too. Car parking available across the road at Bishopston Community Centre or the number 14 bus from Swansea bus station takes you right there.
If you want to get involved please contact Bob and Jules on 07964 530436 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Val on 07533 711 506. Also if you know of any community groups that may be interested in participating, contact Jules and Bob. Volunteer expenses are provided plus unlimited cups of tea and coffee with biscuits!

The existing signage was funded and installed by the Gower Commons initiative in circa 1998 and are now badly in need of replacement.
New signs will warn drivers of free roaming livestock and Animals crossing the roads.
They will beed to be placed near each Cattlegrid on Fairwood, Pengwern and Cefn Bryn where possible.
Hopefully this will raise awareness of the animals, slow traffic and reduce animal deaths.
There have been 9 animal deaths since the beginning of December 2019 already!
Please vote for this initiative and help make the Gower roads safer for everyone.
This project will work in partnership with the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, and Swansea and Neath Port Talbot Forest School. We will deliver woodland activities for health and wellbeing, and volunteer training courses at a number of sites within the rural wards of Swansea, with expected outcomes:
1. Improved management of greenspace sites for biodiversity and amenity value
2. Greater community cohesion and participation through volunteering and gaining new skills
3. Improved health and wellbeing of members of the community with poor health and sedentary lifestyles
4. Improved skills of volunteers, participants and activity leaders
Swansea NPT Forest School will lead on programmes of activities for families with young children, which will focus on physical activity, group engagement in games and skill learning, with an additional focus on nutrition and healthy eating taught mainly through campfire cooking and food foraging.
Wildlife Trust will lead on provision of Agored certified training courses for volunteers, in partnership with Coed Lleol who are registered as an Agored training centre.
We meet every other Saturday morning at Murton Day Room from 10-30 to 13.00.
