Go Wild in Cowbridge Community Orchard
Turn waste ground at the Cowbridge Community Allotments site
into a thriving, fun and productive orchard space that brings all sectors of the
community together with an emphasis on native and wildflower planting.
We are a very friendly, welcoming group of community allotmenteers. Anyone from the local community is welcome to become involved.
Visit the website and use the contact form, find us on Facebook - Cowbridge Community Allotments, or come along to our monthly meetings in the Duke of Wellington, Cowbridge.
