Drefach Felindre Gardening Club is constantly looking for ways to get involved in the local community, either through support or active involvement.   We endeavour to encourage people into the very fulfilling experience of gardening.   We welcome any ideas that would facilitate this and, in doing so, bring the community together in a way that would benefit all.

 The Club works closely with YSGOL PENBOYR (the local primary school).  Club members are encouraged to help in the school garden and share their knowledge with the children.


We already work closely with the school by providing seeds, pots and compost each year. The annual show also provides a platform for exhibiting the children’s artwork that has been produced especially for the event. A cup is awarded each year to the overall winner and rosettes are presented in the school assembly.
