Grow Wild at the Gateway
Our project is transforming a site that was once a waste disposal site. It once attracted anti-social behaviour and fly-tipping, We are building a multi use recreation area, and are engaging with all age groups.
We are based at the Gateway to the Coed Y Morfa Community Woodlands accessed via Lon Goed. With Car parking onsite.
Generally we are on site for organised activities from 11am until 2pm every Thursday and also carry out work at other times during the week. The Morfa Gateway site and the wider community woodland area is always open to the public.
