A Cwtch and a Cuppa

Show Features

The garden is a vibrant celebration of all that can be achieved when local people come together to create and grow. Designed, grown and built by patients from the Grow Well project and local gardening group Billy’s Green Fingers, the garden is a tribute to their creativity and commitment to community gardening.

The title pays tribute to the ‘cwtch’ – a fabulous Welsh word meaning ‘hug’, the warm, welcoming embrace and inclusion that all community gardens offer and the ‘cuppa’ – taking a break in the garden from growing, digging and creating to take time to talk and listen together over a warm brew. The two components are central to community gardens as places of healing and wellbeing – core themes of Grow Cardiff’s work.

Supported by: Cardiff Third Sector Council liaising with Glamorgan Voluntary Services through the Hau Third Sector Fund 2018 in partnership with Cardiff Council and the Vale of Glamorgan Council.
