Next time you walk around parts of Carmarthenshire look down... you could be feet away from free food. For, at strategic places around Burry Port and Llanelli, small pockets of land have been taken over to provide herbs and vegetables for the community to take and enjoy. From a community garden in Burry Port to a herb bed at the nearby harbour, volunteers have created areas of edible plants.
