...an independent development trust delivering sustainable community regeneration in the Dyfi Valley and beyond...

Ecodyfi is a bilingual locally-controlled organisation based in Machynlleth. We were established in 1998 and have been fostering and supporting a greener economy and community ever since. Mostly we work in the Dyfi valley and the UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere area, but also in other parts of Mid Wales. Renewable energy, responsible tourism and community development are our three main areas of expertise. All profits are used to support our aims, as we have no shareholders.


COBWEB was a 4 year project which enabled citizens to collect environmental data using mobile devices. The data is suitable for use in research, decision making and policy formation. The project was located in the Dyfi Biosphere; ecodyfi supported locals and organisations to monitor habitats and learn about the Biosphere.

Information for locals, visitors and business on waste, funding, energy, what to do, travel and culture.
