Bee Friendly Carmarthen

On November 2nd, Friends of the Earth Cymru are launching a new project to make Carmarthen an official Bee Friendly town.

The Welsh Government launched a new nationwide scheme for towns, communities, schools, businesses, universities, public bodies and places of worship to encourage action around pollinators under the title Bee Friendly / Caru Gwenyn ( )  in September.

We would like to make Carmarthen  one of the first towns in Wales to be an official ‘Bee Friendly’ town,  so we are launching this new project with a special film showing and talk by Friends of the Earth bee campaigner Bleddyn Lake

If you would like to get involved with Bee Friendly Carmarthen please do join us :

7pm Wednesday, November 2nd

Carmarthen Library
9 St. Peter’s Street,
SA31 1LN

The Four Goals for Bee Friendly are:
1. Food–providing pollinator-friendly food sources in your area
2. Five Star accommodation–providing places for insect pollinators to live
3. Freedom from pesticides and herbicides – committing to avoid chemicals that harm pollinators
4. Fun–involving all the community and telling people why you are helping pollinators.

Community Herb Garden

 Community Herb Garden
The first herbs are in!!  With the sun shining today, it seemed a perfect opportunity to plant the first of the herbs into the community herb garden in the Forum’s market area.
All we have so far are 2 bay trees and some wild garlic, so please bring  your herby donations to the market area and plant them, or give me a call and I can collect.  Many thanks in anticipation.   Lynn Shallcross  01267 267631

Incredible Edible Network

A food and sustainability network started in the North of England in Todmarten by Co-founders Mary Clear and Pam Warhurst. They have both delivered inspiring talks about the movement for the video lecture series TED:

Core Values:
• working together
• learning – from field to classroom to kitchen
• supporting local business

Inspired by this message, other enthusiasts have picked up the baton. The UK network alone has more than 50 independent groups and as a worldwide movement, it stretches from Canada to New Zealand.
