We’re just back from a recce in Wales. A member has made the wonderful suggestion that we plant a sacred grove on their land near Lake Llyn y Fan Fach and Myddvai. The lake is the site of the origin-story of the Physicians of Mydvvai, who for 500 years healed the sick with their herbal remedies. See an article here about them.We are hoping to plant a grove to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of OBOD, and to include endangered species trees.
We stayed at Mandinam, which offers fantastic accommodation in shepherd’s huts – perfect if you want to get away from it all. The night skies were magnificent and even though sited remotely they have hot showers, a loo, and hot tubs to soak in while you star-gaze! Have a look at their website here for more info and booking details.
