As well as our main gathering in June, we have a September Harvest Camp in the Snowdonia national park. Our beautiful site is at Cerddin Farm in Llanymawddwy near Dinas Mawddwy, Wales. It is a hardy and free-thinking camping weekend with hands-on workshops and activities during the day and a bar with quality live music in the evenings. Our focus is on preserving and enjoying the Harvest and building our skills for self-reliance. This gathering is for Adult learning, there is no provision for Children’s activities although older ones are welcome to the workshops.

Yn ogystal â’n prif ymgynnull ym mis Mehefin, mae gennym Wersyll Cynhaeaf ar fferm yn Llanymawddwy ger Dinas Mawddwy, Cymru. Rydym yn benwythnos gwersylla cyfeillgar a meddwl rhydd gyda gweithdai a gweithgareddau ymarferol yn ystod y dydd a bar gyda cherddoriaeth fyw o safon gyda’r nos. Rydym yn canolbwyntio ar warchod a mwynhau’r Cynhaeaf ac adeiladu ein sgiliau ar gyfer hunanddibyniaeth. Dysgu sgiliau ymarferol sylfaenol mewn amgylchedd hamddenol.

Harvest Camp is in a beautiful high valley in the Snowdonia National Park with lots of flat space for camping and lots of hard standing for campervans. We are totally Solar Powered from the Green Dragon Outback solar generator and the farm that we are on is powered by Hydro, so there is the opportunity to have a look at a serious bit of renewable power engineering. As usual we will be baking all the bread for the cafe on-site and you can get involved in the baking sessions. We have our Camp Market each lunchtime, where you are welcome to sell your own hand-made or second-hand items.
