Landshare; Landowner or Grower? You decide.

Growing your own vegetables can be a great way to cut down on the food miles in getting produce from the field (and overseas) to the dining table, and it's a great way to get young ones involved by teaching them about where their food comes from. Landsharing has taken off in the last year thanks to the Channel 4 show River Cottage, that promoted the idea of trading time and land for the benefit of the community.

Thanks for this one Gemma. Having looked at the LE65 postcode there seem to be a reassuring number of community minded people - but as you say, we could do a lot better. Nice to have another ready-made website to exploit, and it would be nice to track how many users register from this area over time.

There is a project based in Leicester - Fareshare - redistributing shortdated foods to others - is this something that could be promoted too.
