The beating heart of Snowdonia
We shot this film to promote our ‘Welsh Hill Farming Event’ and our tours of Snowdonia and Anglesey, Wales. But the film is also a celebration of how the people of Snowdonia are promoting local products and sustainable living. It’s all part of the thriving local initiatives dedicated to the history, people and culture of the area.
The location of the film is Dinas, above Llanfairfechan, which used to be a Celtic settlement. Look carefully and you will see the traces of their round houses.
The film also shows the area of the ‘snow disaster of March 2013’, and where the BBC 2 Wales programme ‘The Hill Farm’ was shot. And there are spectacular views of the Carneddau Mountains, the Menai Straits and Anglesey.
The village of Llanfairfechan has lead by example showing energy and enthusiasm; Y Felinheli, another village on the Menai Straits is starting to follow and on Anglesey we have ‘Gorau Môn/Best of Anglesey’ being created to promote local products.
‘Making better places for people to live in and better places for people to visit’

Golygfa Gwydyr is hosted a visit from an international exchange learning group looking at Community Garden projects. We will be showing them our community garden at Rhyd y Creuau, our forest site at Caerdroia, as well as one of the woodlands we manage and Ty Hyll.
We also had the BBC filming our community garden as part of a new series entitled ‘Gardens from the Air’.
Chat ‘n’ craft
The Chat’n’Craft group met every Wednesday morning. It was mainly about the chat, but we also tried out different crafts each week.
So far we’ve tried crochet, card making, decoupage, sugar flowers, printing, french knitting, mending and embellishing clothes and more.
We also arrange occasional minibus trips to Craft Fairs and shows with the Knit’n’Natter group.

The Community Garden
Every house has a garden and we’re no different!
Our community house’s garden is a large plot at Rhyd y Creuau Field Studies Centre. We go there every Tuesday and occasional Saturdays and there’s a warm welcome extended to anyone who would like to join us. We learn as we go along and draw from skills from the community.
The community garden now has a Treebog (type of composting toilet) built by volunteers over two days of training provided by The Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens.
