Tyfu Dyfi – food, nature and wellbeing is a Welsh Government funded Enabling Natural Resources and Well-being (ENRaW) project – it started in Sept 2021 and will end on the 30th of June, 2023.
The aim of the project is to increase the number of growing sites in the Dyfi Biosphere area for food, nature and well-being. All activities relate to establishing growing sites, involving the local community, and supporting the development of short supply chains.
In keeping with a UNESCO biosphere project, Tyfu Dyfi looks to the future but seeks to learn from the past. In other words, we view our local food system through an agroecological lens.
Historically, agriculture in Bro Ddyfi was more diverse. Click on the button to see maps showing the previous extent of arable cultivation and hear from older farmers who remember when far more people worked on the land.
As the biodiversity crisis and climate change take hold, its important to know what crops will grow in the future and develop tools that help us understand how we can produce food sustainably.
Tyfu Dyfi is a collaborative project delivered by a consortium of 7 partner organisations. Click here to find out more about each partner organisation and their role in the project.
