Landshare – find land, growers, helpers and inspiration

Long waiting lists for allotments and plenty of growers without land. Backgardens and land standing unused. What to do, what to do?

From the website www.landshare.net

Landshare brings together people who have a passion for home-grown food.

It’s for people who:

  • Want to grow veg but don’t have anywhere to do it
  • Have a spare bit of land they’re prepared to share
  • Can help in some way – from sharing knowledge and lending tools to helping out on the plot itself
  • Support the idea of freeing up more land for growing
  • Are already growing and want to join in the community

Landshare came out of TV’s River Cottage. It began when
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall helped some Bristol families grow veg on
derelict council land. The experience was so inspiring that River
Cottage decided to see if it would work nationwide. Now Landshare is a
national movement of more than 50,000 people.

It began with the tiny seed of an idea – and it’s growing and growing.

I’ve signed up and offered help and some spare beds. Are you looking for space to grow in Southend or want to offer some space? Check this out:
