Landshare – linking people who want to grow their own!

Working with organisations such as Garden Organic and the National Trust, channel 4’s The River cottage have created the landshare site.
I love this concept and feel it is a great way to rebuild communities. I’ve often thought in the past of sharing one or two of our vegetable plots with others in the village.
Unfortunately there is no access to our garden apart from through our house; so it wouldn’t be very empowering for others to only be able to garden when we are around!
Fortunately there is a thriving allotment in the village so I don’t feel too guilty. I share plants and crops with neighbours, so all is well!

As a landowner, grower or helper, you can post onto the landshare site telling readers where you are and what you are offering or looking for help with. Readers get responses through the landshare site and you can start networking.
The site is brand new and over the next few weeks, as interest in the site grows, there will be various content, tools and features added.
It’s a great way to make new friends, plan a sustainable future, grow healthy food and get to know your neighbours.
Why not pop over to the site, browse listings by area or offer up some of your own land for people to use?
