Stockwood Community Benefit Society

Stockwood Community Benefit Society was set up in 2012 with support from the Biodynamic Land Trust (BDLT), to create a visionary community asset. A successful share offer in 2013 led to the purchase of the property in June 2014.

A further offer in 2016 allowed the purchase of the remainder of Rush Farm, and the development of successful renewable energy projects, and Stockwood now owns Rush Farm and Stockwood Business Park for community benefit in perpetuity.
