9. Bug Farm/Pollinator Trail (Sat. only) – https://www.drbeynonsbugfarm.com

We are a 100 acre working farm, research centre and visitor attraction all about invertebrates (‘bugs’) and sustainable agriculture based just one mile from St Davids in the heart of the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The Bug Farm is the leading partner on a new and exciting project called The St Davids Pollinator Trail. Working with Welsh artists, scientists and communicators, a “station” will be created at each business, or area of habitat to showcase the wonderful world of insect pollinators and the importance of wild flower habitat in supporting them. An interactive trail, with map and spotter guide will take people and pollinators from station to station. For further information: sarah.sharpe@thebugfarm.co.uk.

Dr Beynon’s Bug Farm Pollinator Trail will encourage members of the public visiting The Bug Farm to explore the Bug Farm Trail using the senses of an insect pollinator moving from one piece of artwork to another and seeing the world from a pollinator’s-eye-view.

Participants will take a multi-sensory journey across the farmed landscape to explore it in a totally novel and unique way, hopefully understand that a more complex landscape with more flowers (alongside productive agriculture) = better for pollinators. Moving through wildflower meadows managed for pollinators, passing bee hives, solitary bee nests, bumblebee nests and hoverfly nests, this truly immersive journey leads people into the hidden world of life in the undergrowth. Artists and scientists based at The Bug Farm will link pieces of artwork together as a fun, yet educational, journey using a treasure-hunt/geo-caching format with clues provided at each artwork to guide the participant towards the next artwork. Clues will require participants to explore the artworks using one ‘sense’ per piece. Any senses not explored on the journey will be described on Bug Farm interpretation across the Trail.

10. Caerhys Organic Farm – http://www.coca-csa.org

Caerhys Organic Community Agriculture (COCA) is an agricultural scheme run for and supported by the local community. COCA members share delicious organic food grown in partnership with local farmers.

Our concept is simple and based on mutual benefit and shared risk.  Sharers pay a monthly membership, throughout the year, and once a week visit Caerhys Organic Farm (close to St David’s) or the nearest pick-up point to where they live to collect their share of freshly harvested seasonal vegetables.

Apart from a colourful array of vegetables, sharers can also buy fresh local produce – organic milk, cheese, eggs and free-range organic meats – and other locally sourced organic fruit and vegetables.  We work with nearby organic farmers to ensure the range and quality of produce available to members is the best it can be.

Our vision

  • A community of people sharing and supporting organic food production, in a spirit of friendship and trust

Our aims

  • To produce organic vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs, and enable wider access to local organic meat, dairy products and eggs
  • To enable members to live and eat well in an organic and sustainable way
  • To support sustainable food production in the local area
  • To grow a community around the project based on shared work, social activity and a spirit of friendship
  • To develop in whatever way the members feel will help achieve these aims

Our principles

  • That organic food production provides the best and most nutritious food for all, maintains fertile soils and ensures a healthy, diverse environment into the future
  • That supporting local organic farmers and producers is worthwhile for local consumers
  • That co-operation, shared risks and shared benefits, and a spirit of friendship are fundamental to the operation of the group
  • That decisions should be arrived at by consensus wherever possible
