Cwm Harry Land Trust

Cwm Harry Land Trust is a charitable organisation which collects and composts food waste in and around Newtown, Powys.

They also run a veggie bag delivery scheme with produce from the garden and from other local growers.

On 8 October 2011 they held an open day at their processing plant on The Vastre Industrial Estate and visitors were encouraged to visit the operation, view the gardens and processing plant and bring a bag so they could take some of the compost home.

The charity has recently received a lottery grant LinkExternal link enabling them to expand their enterprise to cover a wider area in Montgomery, Welshpool and Llanidloes.
