Case Study: Llangollen Community Garden

Llangollen Community Garden Group

Llangollen Community Garden is an organic food-growing group, based on the site of an abandoned plot in Llangollen owned by Denbighshire County Council, which gave permission for the development of community growing in 2012. It’s an excellent example of the process of setting up a community garden on a council site, with a licence rather than a lease.

The gardening group has three main aims: developing a high quality organic food source in Llangollen; Providing opportunities for local people, groups and schools to directly engage with the natural world and food production; and building community links by bringing together individuals and locals groups. The group is also keen to develop wildlife on the site.

Catherine Veasey, who has been involved in the development of the garden through the local Friends Of The Earth group, describes more about the garden and how it worked with the council. Download the case study using the link below:
