Green Flag Community Award - Natural Dye Garden Group


For the second consecutive year the Natural Dye Garden, sited at the National Wool Museum, has again received the Green Flag Community Award.  This is in recognition of the quality of work undertaken and is delivered by Keep Wales Tidy, an environmental charity.


The Natural Dye Garden group of volunteers from Drefach Felindre Gardening Club have been working on the project since 2014.  Penboyr School Eco group have also been involved and the National Wool Museum has provided support.  The raised beds have gone from strength to strength, and this year new plants have been introduced.


The aim of the project is to grow a variety of plants that have traditionally been used to produce natural dyes to colour the yarn made by the woollen mill.
