Funded by the Rural Development Plan for Wales 2007-2013 funded by the Welsh Government and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, Carmarthenshire County Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund and the National Trust.
This project delivered short courses in skills essential to maintaining the built and natural environment in South West Wales. The courses were aimed at developing new and transferable skills with underemployed and marginalised members of the local community and upskilling the workforce in the heritage building sector and the environmental conservation field. Keep Wales Tidy, Ty Mawr and Applewise all delivered training as part of this project.
Other aspects of the project included open days, hands-on events for schools, a work experience project at the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and the production of information leaflets about looking after Wales’s built heritage.
