Mewn cydweithrediad â Chymreigyddion y Fenni, dyma hanes o ail-ddarganfod, treftadaeth bwyd Cymreig, partneriaeth a datblygu mudiad i sicrhau sofraniaeth hâd trwy achub yr hen fathau o lafur. Bu’r ffermwr organig, Gerald Miles, yn chwilio am flynyddoedd am yr hen fath o geirch y byddai ei dadcu yn arfer tyfu. Bydd yn ymuno gyda ni, ynghyd ag Iwan Evans a Owen Shiers, i adrodd yr hanes o sut maen nhw, gyda rhwydwaith o dyfwyr Cymreig, wedi adfer y Ceirch Du. Sesiwn drwy gyfrwng y Gymraeg bydd hwn, yn cael ei gadeirio gan yr hanesydd bwyd Cymreig Carwyn Graves. Bydd cyfieithu ar y pryd ar gael.

Back in Black – The Story of Welsh Black Oats Llafur Ni – Hanes Ceirch Du Cymreig

In collaboration with Chymreigyddion y Fenni, we present a tale of re-discovery, Welsh food heritage, partnership, and the sprouting of a new national seed sovereignty movement in Llafur Ni. Welsh organic farmer Gerald Miles searched for years for the rare Welsh crop his grandfather once grew, worried that they were lost forever. He joins us to share his tale, accompanied by Owen Shiers and Iwan Evans who, thanks to a network of Welsh growers, helped re-discover and revive the Welsh Black Oats.

This is a Welsh language session, chaired by Welsh food historian and author, Carwyn Graves, with simultaneous translation available for non-Welsh speakers.
