Case Study: Rhostyllen Allotment Project

Rhostyllen Allotment Project

On a strip of land between a disused railway line and residential housing in the community of Esclusham (on the outskirts of Wrexham), are 12 allotment plots, used by members of the community to grow food and socialise in a small communal area planted with wild flowers.

Called the Rhostyllen Allotments Project, it is an excellent example of how a local community council can support the development of a growing project – transforming an overgrown piece of land used for dumping rubbish into something valued and useful. 

Richard Elias, of Esclusham Community Council, describes how the project has evolved in the case study, which you can download using the link below:
