Moelyci Festive Fair
MOELYCI FESTIVE FAIR, 11TH DECEMBER 11AM-4PM
Come and see our festive fruit leathers and other hedgerow delights that we have for sale!
We are developing six and a half acres under permaculture principles.
Our plans include:
- Incredible Edible Hedgerows, which are 400 years old. They grow all around Corn Helyg, and are abundant with wild plums, sloes, blackberries, hawthorn, wild cherry and gorse.
- Our stream and wetland is rich with meadowsweet, and these areas will be developed further by planting 3,000 trees – mostly trees and shrubs with edible, medicinal and other useful qualities.
- No-dig vegetable beds using organic and permaculture principles.
- Edible swimming pond.
- Road Rocks, Light Sussex, and Pied Suffolk hens, Silkies and Indian Runner Ducks.
- Forest Garden.
Corn Helyg is on Anglesey’s west side, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The wildlife is amazing, and although we’ve been told we are situated on the windiest part of the island, we don’t really notice the high winds. However, are planting a shelter belt of 1600 trees in November 2011, to protect Corn Helyg’s animals and plants.
There is a beautiful tranquil feel to Corn Helyg. Buzzards mew overhead, while frogs, toads, lizards and large bats also grace us with their presence.
