Caernarfonshire Branch CPRW : Summer Events
This year our themes are Community Enterprises (notably drink) and wild plant communities.
Saturday May 18th Moel y Ci Farm, near Bangor (400m off B4366 on Tregarth road)
Moel y Ci has gone through some difficulties since our last visit but has now re-established itself as a Community Interest Company. We plan a visit for lunch in their restored barn up by the farmhouse.
We will then have a talk about the new developments, both the struggle to establish the CIC and the plans for its future sustainability within the ethos of ecologically sensitive landuse. We will then have an opportunity to take a tour of the farm. Please arrive for lunch at about 12.30pm.
Cost for the Day £12.00 per person. Please notify your intention to come and any dietary requirements before May 15th. firstname.lastname@example.org
