Swansea Community Farm
An exemplar in sustainable living and community-focused activities.
Swansea Community Farm is a small working farm which is home to a variety of rare breed farm animals and provides demonstrations of organic growing, wildlife gardening and composting. There is an orchard and apiary, and a small café serving fair trade, organic, local and seasonal produce.
The project has well-established volunteer and youth engagement schemes, and education and training programmes. The Farm also helps to manage the adjacent Cadle Heath Local Nature Reserve. The purpose-designed buildings and grounds have been built with several environmentally friendly features including solar panels, a wood burner, rain water collection and water saving devices, reclaimed building materials and wool insulation.
