Cydweithio i wella Cymunedau Abertawe / Working together to enhance Swansea Communities
Imagine a space where children and their families can come and stay with us to learn about permaculture and growing your own, where they can experience therapies like yoga and sound therapy, where they can access workshops and classes on great creased newt and bats conservation, cook plant-based recipes, enjoy playing in our wooden play area or berry labyrinth, or enjoy a bonfire jam. We will run workshops that seek to educate and heal, including gardening, days out foraging, vegan nutrition, creating bat houses and bird boxes, looking after our sheep and pets, and accessing the many therapies and events that we are planning to run with other therapists in our community. We want to create a magical healing space that will inspire people to visit to the beautiful Gower peninsula regularly and galvanise a new sense of community support.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
There is a language that is created within these natural practices, between a curious heart and the land beneath our feet. We discover insight as we slow down and grow into a natural affinity for the earth and everything around us. The activities we are developing help raise ecological and sustainability awareness and promote the value of wild green spaces, through the exploration of organic materials and a more natural way of living. We want to make natural living and healing inclusive and accessible to all by using inexpensive sensory materials such as flowers and soils, natural sounds and instruments, and the natural environment around us. Learning and creativity also holds a key for connecting with our inner worlds. When we immerse ourselves in reflective activities, we learn to listen more carefully to our wellbeing and dive more deeply into our true nature as human beings. When coupled with natural and holistic therapies, we can help the healing reach deeper into ourselves.
Steps to get it done:
Our community allotment is an opportunity for young people and their families to participate in a projects to help them develop their skills and knowledge in growing. Each participating family will be responsible for a specific task, and all tasks will be rotated amongst the participating families so that everyone will gain all-round experience of working on the allotment. Our food growing space is dedicated to our volunteering community as well as the local and visiting come nitrites that the project will attract, so that we can share our produce and fundraise at the same time for the sustainability or future activities on the allotment. Charging for our produce will generate enough income to buy seeds or a few new tools for the following year. Surplus allotment produce will be donated to local food banks. Ty Enfys will provide all the facilities, equipment, gatherings and informal and formal peer support, to provide a community growing opportunity.
