We welcome an exciting new project to Grwp Reslience’s portfolio in 2022.

Our vision is to shorten the food chain from grower to consumer, develop resilience, strengthen people who have lived experience and to find a way forward. Throughout Spring 2022 Grwp, in collaboration with our growing organisations will be bringing a programme of Wellbeing and Green Life Skills courses and Knowledge Exchange

On the 22nd of March we host our first course, Building a Meat Curing Chamber with Bob Robarts. A practical workshop for any meat farmer wanting a specialist product from the farm without high use of energy. The practical learning will take place from 10am - 3pm with the option of having a guided tour fo the regenerative beef farming methods used on the farm. You can book you place on this course here



On Saturday the 26th March we will be taking a group to visit Car y Mor Sustainable Sea farm to learn about a nourishing sea friendly future farming method, and taste the produce. Drop an email to learning@grwp.wales to be added to the waiting list for this experience.
