Save Brithdir Mawr Community

Sep 26, 2019

Birthdir Mawr Low Impact Community have been WWOOF UK hosts for many years and have been an intentional community since 1994. They are in Pembrokeshire coast National Park in west Wales and have been managing the land and living in as sustainable way as they can for all these years. Literally thousands of people have visited over the years to learn something about living in a more harmonious way with Nature.

As WWOOF UK hosts this low-impact eco community are notorious for the following statement on their description – ‘Unfortunately, we can’t accept volunteers flying just to spend time with us as the environmental cost of flying far out-weighs the benefit of your visit” – an indication of their commitment to sustainability.

Brithdir Mawr provide low cost, rented housing and the resources for members to be able to live a more simple, low impact lifestyle; providing a valuable educational resource where skills and knowledge are shared and sustainability is actively promoted. 

The community currently face a huge challenge as their lease runs out at the end of 2019 and the landlord is now looking to part ways with Brithdir Mawr and wants to sell the property, however he is very keen that the community continues and is therefore offering the community first refusal.

To Save Brithdir Mawr and safeguard this land into the future one million pounds is needed to buy the 80 acre site to continue developing the Welsh language centre, contributing towards the development of a regenerative culture, farming using organic methods and preserving and increasing biodiversity [and of course, hosting wonderful WWOOFers!!] – but can only do so with our help.
