The Maesnewydd garden center reopens its doors

Spring has arrived and the green-fingered residents of Rhondda Cynon Taf can return to the Maesnewydd Garden Center and Coffee Shop for all their “garden goodies” – for the first time in two years.

Rhondda Cynon Taf Council is delighted that the Maesnewydd Garden Center and Coffee Shop in Aberdare is able to open its doors and welcome the public again after being closed for two years due to the global pandemic.

Maesnewydd Garden Center and Coffee Shop reopens on Monday 11 April. It will also be open on public holidays and on Saturdays from the Easter weekend.

Tracey Davies, Manager of Maesnewydd Garden Center and Coffee Shop, said: “We are delighted to be reopening after being closed for two years due to the global pandemic.

“We now look forward to welcoming our customers, old and new, to Maesnewydd. Buy local, support local business and our service and come see our newly stocked garden center for all your gardening needs.

With the return of spring and the coming months of summer, the friendly and experienced staff are on hand to provide horticultural advice and also to offer visitors some of the best healthy plants grown on site at Rhondda Cynon Taf.

Run as a support business by the Council’s Adult Services, Maesnewydd Garden Center and Coffee Shop, is fully stocked with a wide variety of seeds, plants and small trees to suit the tastes and requirements of all gardeners – from pots and planters to large gardens, smallholdings and housing estates.

Offering employment opportunities and facilities for adults with physical and learning disabilities, Maesnewydd is a popular venue for gardeners and also for those who just like to meet and chat with friends in the café.

Three full-time employees work in the garden center and cafe, helping up to 12 people on site with learning and physical disabilities. Maesnewydd Garden Center and Coffee Shop looks forward to welcoming customers and visitors, old and new.

Its professional layout, fully accessible to people with reduced mobility, guides visitors along rows and rows of vegetables and flowers – plants and seeds. Bags of compost, fertilizers, repellents and garden gifts are also on sale, all at competitive prices.

Maesnewydd Garden Center and Coffee Shop is located at Llewellyn Street, Trecynon, Aberdare, CF44 8HU. It will reopen on Monday April 11 and will also be open on public holidays and on Saturdays from the Easter weekend.
