We are a not for profit/community led organisation that specialises in growing native trees using organic methods from locally collected seeds. These are nurtured until they are ready to be sold as bare root trees for hedging and woodland planting. We also grow and sell herbs and fruit bushes as well as grafting our own fruit trees which we sell in pots throughout the year.
Coeden Fach is also a place where people can grow and develop. We are always looking for volunteers to help nurture our trees and develop the biodiversity of the site. We also work with a diverse number of community groups who visit our site for therapeutic work. Training courses are held throughout the year on subjects such as fruit tree grafting, green woodworking and basket making.
We are currently negotiating a new site within the walled garden in Clyne Gardens. This lovely site is an exciting venture for us and will enable us to have closer links with Swansea, enabling increased access for our volunteers. It will also enable us to diversify and grow a wider selection of trees including some standards for street trees, in order that we can supply more trees in both the rural and urban areas of Swansea. If you are interested in helping us to establish the new site, please let us know. We are currently putting together our proposal for the site and would like to inform and involve the local community in the decisions that we are making.
We are aiming to submit our planning application to Swansea Council in the near future and it should then appear on the planning portal when you do a search.
We have some exciting training sessions planned for winter/spring 2020, please take a look at our events page for further information.
