David Sears, Regional Host Contact (RHC) for South Wales arranged a gathering in West Wales recently and sent us this report.
On Saturday 11th March hosts and WWOOFers met at Caerhys Organic Farm, near St Davids, on the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast, for our annual WWOOF gathering. We were treated to a tour of the farm by the farmer, Gerald Miles, an inspirational man.
The farm is a CSA, Community Supported Agriculture, a scheme run for and supported by the local community. The aim is to produce local, seasonal produce, supporting local farmers directly and involving members in the life of the farm. Gerald is passionate about how we produce and consume food and is an avid campaigner for Food Sovereignty; have a look at www.coca-csa.org for more detail.
We shared a fabulous lunch, thank you to all hosts for their contributions. A great afternoon was had by all. The coast was only yards away but the mist and drizzle obscured the view completely, that’s West Wales for you. Roll on spring…
