Improving the ecology and biodiversity of marginal agricultural land, creating opportunities for low-impact livelihoods and improving the resilience of communities through local food production.
The Ecological Land Co-operative seeks to widen access to land for sustainable use through the creation of affordable low-impact smallholdings. The high costs of land and rural housing make it near impossible for new entrants to farming to establish a farm business. By providing affordable and secure smallholdings, we are helping to address this crisis.
Those who benefit include Co-op members, the broader networks of environmental and agricultural activists, stewards (smallholders), the physical communities in which smallholding sites are located and the wider public.
