My sister sent me a link to Landshare last week. It’s Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s next project, after the success of the Chicken Out campaign. This one’s all about growing your own food, and not letting lack of space stand in your way.
On the Landshare website you can register as a grower, landowner, or land-spotter. People who want to grow vegetables or fruit but don’t have gardens will be matched up with people who have land they’re not using. Others will spot and recommend unused land in their towns that could be turned into community gardens.
I’ll let Hugh tell you about it:
Landshare will be launched in the spring, but you can register your interest on the website in advance.
