When I lived in my little 2nd floor flat in the centre of Brighton, I yearned for a little piece of dirt on which to grow my own fruit and veg, My kitchen window sill was crammed with as many herb plant pots as I could fit on it and a chilli plant held residence on the counter top.
If a scheme like Landshare had existed back then, I would have jumped at the chance to register. Instead, I looked out every day on to the huge garden below that belonged to the ground floor flat and that was utterly un-kept by it’s elderly owners – what a waste!
These days I’m lucky enough to finally have my piece of dirt and an imagination full of ideas as to what to grow and although it’s only in the planning stages, I can’t wait to see what I have achieved by next Autumn.
What is Landshare?
With allotment waiting lists massively over-subscribed and people right across the country keener than ever to grow their own fruit and veg, the aim for Landshare is to become a UK wide initiative to make British land more productive and fresh local produce more accessible to all. But all of this depends on people like you registering their interest now.
Sign up to help build the momentum needed to launch this exciting project in early 2009. In the meantime, via monthly updates, you’ll get the chance to help shape the initiative and make sure you’re amongst the first to have the opportunity to be involved.
