About the Project
These workshops will bring together people of varying backgrounds & cultures. Sharing of food is intrinsically co-operative – it's a good way of breaking down boundaries. We want to encourage both families, and single people. Social isolation is often unseen in rural areas & we want these workshops to be an easy way of helping people build confidence to socialise with others in their community.
About the Charity
We work to increase community access to land and locally produced food. We show how food can be grown and prepared to provide simple, nutritious and tasty! meals. Our activities help improve public spaces and community cohesion. We deliver 3 different services to our rural community of Machynlleth and the surrounding Dyfi Valley: 1) Edible Mach, more than 55 volunteers growing freely available food in public spaces. 2) Dyfi Land Share, a scheme to match up people who do not have access to land with people who have land they are willing to share. 3) Green Isle Growers, a co-operative Veg Box Scheme in which 10 growers work together to produce fresh food which is sold at affordable prices to people local to where the food is grown.
