Minister visits down to earth project
Rebecca Evans, Welsh Labour's Gower candidate for the Assembly elections, has welcomed the Minister for Natural Resources, Carl Sargeant, to Gower once again this week.
The two took the opportunity to visit Down to Earth's Little Bryn Gwyn project, near Llanrhidian, where sustainable training facilities are currently under construction.
The project, which has benefitted from Welsh Government funding, offers a diverse range of people - particularly from groups sometimes seen as 'hard to reach' or from disadvantaged backgrounds - the opportunity to get hands-on and use traditional and sustainable methods to construct buildings of a commercial standard.
Rebecca Evans said: "Both the Natural Resources Minister and I were impressed.
"Down to Earth is a tremendously exciting project, offering people the chance to gain accredited skills and grow their confidence in a wide range of areas that grab the attention of potential future employers - such as team working, for example.
"The project is also committed to sustainability. It is very much in the spirit of the Welsh Government's commitment to the wellbeing of future generations, helping us work toward a more prosperous, resilient, healthier and more equal Wales - a Wales where we have strong communities with a vibrant culture and thriving Welsh language, and where we are mindful of and responsive to global challenges.
"I look forward to visiting again and seeing the project continuing to take shape!"
