Each story in this ongoing series highlights different ways to access and work with the land to grow more food, make connections and create community greenspaces that deliver in many different ways for the people that work them.
Within every story, there is inspiration and nuggets of invaluable knowledge for community groups and landowners to be passed on to enable others to join a growing movement. If you are an active growing group, you will have a Land Story; share it here to demonstrate what is possible and sow some inspiration. A big thank you to all those below that took time to share their story.

Are you a community group wanting to develop your vision, test your approach and see and learn from these examples and others? The Community Learning Exchange Programme has supported hundreds of groups to do just that. Contact us to find out more.

Has your growing group been involved in Local Place Planning or Local Development Planning? We’d love to hear your experience of this.
