Case Study: 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.

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.
