Community garden/Allotment Update

Aberystwyth and Penparcau Town Council met last night. Over the last four years, the town council has worked on obtaining more land from the county council to develop allotments.  Two years ago, Ceredigion County Council assigned a lease for 25 year to the town council for land on Fifth Avenue.

A public meeting was held on the 25th of September to discuss this with residents. As a result of this consultation, and taking into consideration some of their concerns, we have agreed to give 12 months to develop a community garden instead of allotments. This is on the condition that the community group become a properly constituted body and if Ceredigion County Council allow the lease condition to be varied.
This will be a compromise, but hopefully, local residents will be able to use the community garden for leisure and growing, rather than a closed off area.
We will be in discussion with the residents of how to set up the group and where they can obtain grant. Can you help? Would you be interested in helping to develop this site as community garden? Please contact us.

  1. Hello,

    My name is Micheal and I make an organic plant stimulant!

    I have been researching in Aberystwyth University for over two years the potential of seaweed as a plant stimulant and have developed a highly effective, cheap and 100% organic plant spray made from seaweed harvested in Aberystwyth.

    “Algaebloom” increases plants resistance to “environmental stress” such as temperature stress, high salinity and pathogen stress such as powdery mildew. We have had some fantastic results (see below) and I am now supplying Aberystwyth University allotments with organic plant inputs.

    I would also like to offer my services to Penparcau allotments with your inputs! If this sounds interesting, please don’t hesitate to email or call me on 07583006115.

    Thank you!
