We at Dyfi Valley Seed Savers are sad to say that the group has been wound up, and the reserves given to Gerddi Bro Ddyfi Gardens (GBD), an amazing therapeutic community garden here in Machynlleth.

Eventually, all the information on this website will migrate over to


Don't worry, our fabulous seed saving and plant swap events haven't disappeared from the Machynlleth diary.

On 25th April, GBD will host an open day for the community at Y Plas Machynlleth.

10 - 4pm, with refreshments, garden tours, talks, stalls, dancing, music and children's activities.

Thank you for your interest and support over the years.

17th MARCH 2013

Ysgol Bro Ddyfi, Machylleth, SY20 8DR

10am - 3pm

This year's event is being held in March, rather than the traditional February. We have a shorter growing season here compared to more southern climes of the UK, and it has been a particularly long winter this year, so this year we are trialling the combination of Seedy Sunday and Seedling Saturday.

DVSS shall also be organising a new Harvest Festival style event in early October – watch out for a local celebration of perennial plants; advice on saving and storing local tree seed varieties; sharing food preserves; a competition of 'interestingly shaped' veg; making fruit cordials; book signings and talks.

Watch this space :)
