Detail

This guide is aimed at community groups that might be looking for land to start their food growing project or trying to find new ways to encourage people to get involved in their existing scheme.

It is also for individuals who might be interested in growing their own food but are not sure whether to wait for a local authority allotment or continue their search elsewhere.

The case studies showcase best practice and the varied approaches that community groups have taken to getting land to use for their food growing projects.
