community land trust

The Ecological Land Co-operative has been set up to buy land that has been, or is at risk of being, intensively managed and lease it to people that have the skills to manage it ecologically and would not otherwise be able to afford do so.
Our mission is to provide affordable opportunities for ecological land-based businesses in the UK. We support rural regeneration by developing affordable sites for farming, forestry and other rural enterprises which are viable and ecologically beneficial.

Tatamagouche Community Land Co-operative is project to transfer land from private ownership to community ownership using the community land trust model. Community land trusts remove land from the private property market and provide affordable long-term leases to residents. The land co-op was established on 100 acres of an old dairy farm and is home to Waldegrave Farm, the Free School and many other projects. More on the project can be found in this recent newspaper article.
