About Laura Wallwork:
With an MSc in Science Communication, Laura went on to gain a diploma in biodynamic agriculture with the BDA 12 years ago after working for Velwell Orchard for 3 seasons, supplying Demeter certified produce to Riverford Organic Farmshop and a veg box scheme. After this, she farmed 230acres of mixed farming supplying BD produce to the South West of England and beyond, always with an interest in ‘putting culture back into agriculture. Biodynamic studies continue at Coleg Plas Dwbl where Laura has been farm manager since 2017.
I have been teaching horticulture in Coleg Plas Dwbl for over 5 years after finishing a two-year Biodynamic Association apprenticeship. My focus has been on therapeutic education based on horticultural activities and Bee-keeping. The primary purpose of Plas Dwbl Horticulture is to provide meaningful, hands on education and work experience. The garden is supplying the busy college canteen as well as Veg-boxes for students and staff. I feel committed to Anthroposophical studies with friends from the local community.

Directions to the venue:
The college is by the village of Mynachlog-ddu, very near the Precelli Pony Trekking centre. There is a red sign at the entrance, and you’ll need to go over the cattle grid and follow the concrete track to a car park.
From Carmarthen, take the A40 towards Haverfordwest, and turn on to the A478 – 3rd exit off the roundabout by Narberth. Head towards Cardigan, going through Clynderwen, Llandisilo and Efailwen. Take a left-hand turn at a 5-way junction where the road to Mynachlog-ddu forks-off to the left right by ‘The Cross Inn’. Take the next left, signposted Maenclochog. Go right at the T-junction. Coleg Plas Dwbl is on the right – look out for a wooden egg-stall.
From Cardigan, head South on the Tenby road A478 and take the right-hand turn just after Crymych. Follow this road until you go through Mynachlog-ddu. The college is just after the Riding Centre on the left.
NB The satnav may or may not work and there is very little phone reception for SA66 7SE
