Case Study: Llangollen Community Garden

This organic food-growing community garden, based on the site of an abandoned plot in Llangollen, is 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.

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.

Gwneud Cais am Grantiau ar Dir wedi’i Rentu

Mae’r ddogfen hon yn rhoi arweiniad ar wneud cais am grantiau pan mae grŵp tyfu cymunedol yn gweithredu ar dir wedi’i rentu. Mae’n ymdrin â grantiau ar gyfer grwpiau cymunedol, nid grantiau ffermydd (Stiwardiaeth, y Taliad Sengl a.y.y.b.). Gall cymhwyster ar gyfer grant ddibynnu ar brofi pa mor hir fydd y grŵp ar y tir/safle, gan fod arianwyr yn aml eisiau gwneud yn siwr y bydd y prosiect yn rhedeg yn ddigon hir i gael y budd mwyaf o’r grant.

Proses Cael Gafael ar Dir (ar gyfer grwpiau cymunedol)

Mae’r canllaw cyffredinol hwn yn mynd â grwpiau tyfu cymunedol (neu’r rheiny sy’n gobeithio dechrau un) trwy’r broses sy’n gysylltiedig â sefydlu gardd gymunedol ar safle. Mae’n rhoi proses cam wrth gam eang a dolenni i adnoddau gwybodaeth defnyddiol a grëwyd gan CLAS.
