Sowing Seeds for the
On the 5th March The Hanging Gardens hosted a combined event and workshop day. The day was started with a seed swap organised by our highly motivated and knowledgeable gardener. The activity also facilitated other local groups to exhibit their projects which were aligned with the ethos of the day ‘Sowing seeds for the future’. Groups in attendance were; Gwneud Gwair Cymeig, Zero Carbon Llanidloes, the Repair Team, Llani Car Club, Wales Seed Hub. This event was organised so that attendees of the seedswap were then engaged in a community workshop, a community meal was served to attendees. The Community Workshop looked at Llanidloes in 2037 if a best case scenario is achieved. Attendees to the event brainstormed ideas and we workshopped these ideas into achievable actions, whilst these ideas were discussed a graphic facilitator created an illustration of the ideas set within our town. The workshop was attended by 107 people, resulting in a ‘ideas’ tree and a beautiful, large illustration. These works will serve our community as we work to achieve these goals and remind us of a successful community event for years to come.
Roedd Yr Ŵyl Bwmpen, diwedd mis Hydref, yn ddydd o ddathlu a chyfrannu cymunedol. Cynhaliwyd y dathliadau ar Stryd Y Dderwen Fawr (yn glir o foduron) – ddaeth a phobl allan i'r stryd i gymdeithasu, dawnsio, yfed, bwyta a mwynhau cwmni ei gilydd yn dilyn cyfnod hir o hunan ynysu. Trefnwyd Yr Ŵyl Bwmpen mewn cydweithrediad â Chyngor Tref Llanidloes, Marchnad Siarter Llanidloes, Ysgol Gynradd Llanidloes ac Ysgol Uwchradd Llanidloes, Coleg Y Drenewydd, Credu a'r Clwb Rotari gyda chymordd gan bron i bob busnes lleol a llawer o wirfoddolwyr. Roedd y dydd yn llwyddiant ysgubol gyda mwy na 1000 o bobl yn bresennol. Dangosodd yr ŵyl syt y gall fywyd mewn tref fechan barhau wedi cyfyngiadau Cofid os ydym yn canolbwyntio ar weithredoedd sy'n dod â phawb at ei gilydd.
Today humanity faces many challenges that have a global and lasting impact on our way of life. The planet's average surface temperature has already risen about 1.14C since the late 19th century, and scientists forecast a rise of 2C to 5C by the end of the century. This change is driven by increased carbon dioxide and other human-made emissions into the atmosphere, but also by the destruction of natural environment and wildlife all around the world. Its consequences on biodiversity, agriculture, economy, heath, water access... are unprecedented.
