Dyfi Valley Permaculture Network
Using permaculture to design our way to a more sustainable and happier life.
What We Do
We organise an annual virtual seed swap, in association with Planna Fwyd.
Seeds are now all almost gone for 2021, the remainder will be on offer at our community seed/ plant swap on 22 May at Gerddi Bro Ddyfi Gardens, Y Plas, Machynlleth, 11 – 3pm.
We have a plant swap table in Machynlleth, contact us for details
As soon as we are able, we will resume our get togethers.
Bring your own snacks and drinks while we plan how and what we want to achieve.
The permablitz is a hands on, member-led work day on a garden, plot or smallholding.
Due to Covid 19, these are suspended at the moment, but you can join Planna Fwyd’s Land Army here

They fix nitrogen into the soil, soContinue reading “Broad Beans, and what comes after?”
