CARE is a community benefit society working in North Pembrokeshire, with the aim of tackling fuel poverty and reducing carbon emissions locally. In 2019 it put up a wind turbine near Llanfyrnach; all profits will go back to local people.

It is organising free events such as a wellbeing walk at Cornerwood, Llangoedmor SA43 2LQ, on Saturday 10 April 2021 – which has proved so popular that it is already fully booked.

Cornerwood is a beautiful woodland located on the north side of the Teifi gorge. Cornerwood will introduce the ethos of its family-run business, highlighting how it specialises in woodland crafts and produce and there are hopes for many more events like this in the future.

Jasmine Dale, permaculture designer, ecological and integrated design consultant, will lead a Wellbeing Walk, providing opportunities to understand how the woodlands can be used to enhance health and wellbeing. During the walk, Jasmine aims “to combine both sensory and objective observations as a route to understanding ecology and our role within it”.

Check the Facebook page for CARE to find out what other events are being planned and for more information on the job advertised there.
