The Natural Way to Grow

Community gardening, volunteering, accredited learning, social prescription


Who are we?

Cynon Valley Organic Adventures are a community run social enterprise based in the Cynon Valley on a beautiful 5 acre plot of land in Abercynon, opposite the sports centre.  Our grounds are truly magical with a large pond, orchard area, willow and hazel coppice and a large river side woodland.  Primarily we are here to nurture the land, to protect and preserve the wildlife and to teach others how to do this but we will also provide the following services from March 2019 in order to fund the garden:

  • Accredited learning, for individuals, groups and employers
  • Employability training for ages 14 +
  • Social prescription activities
  • Fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Wildlife preservation
  • Clubs and weekly sessions for groups and individuals
  • Rental of the land and cabin to other organisations for training/events

Benefits of Spending Time in Nature

Spending time in nature can have significant benefits on our health and well being and this can impact on all areas of our lives.  Research shows that regular time in nature can reduce chances of developing type 11 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, premature death, stress and high blood pressure.

The problems of everyday life seem to drift away for a little while and are replaced with a sense of peace, helping to rejuvenate you and to build resilience.  The effects of nature will benefit all ages and help to strengthen the immune system, and we encourage people to get stuck in and nurture the land a little while they are here.
