ELC improves the ecology and biodiversity of marginal agricultural land, creating opportunities for low-impact livelihoods and helping the resilience of communities through local food production.
The Ecological Land Cooperative widens 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, ELC is helping to address this crisis.
Benefits are felt by smallholders, Coop members, the networks of environmental and agricultural activists, the communities in which smallholding sites are located and the wider public.
