Making Land Work for your Community

In partnership with

All across the country communities are managing land in ways that create livelihoods, produce resources and deliver a wide range of community benefits, from environmental improvements to improved health and wellbeing. These include successful market gardens, woodland social enterprises and even parks and public open spaces.

In a time when COVID 19 has exposed the fragility of our existing systems - and in the face of climate change and the need for a transition to a zero carbon economy – sustainable, productive local land use offers models for communities to increase their resilience and resourcefulness.
