Landshare Australia

 It began with the tiny seed of an idea – and it's growing and growing…

Great news!! Landshare, the grow-your-own phenomenon that has taken the UK by storm, has finally arrived in Australia! Landshare is a fabulous concept that encourages people to connect with one another and share land so that everybody, including those in inner city ares, has access to home-grown produce – in a nutshell, Landshare connects growers to people with land to share. 

Landshare Australia brings together people who have a passion for home-grown food, connecting those who have land to share with those who need land for cultivating food. The concept of Landshare began in the UK, launched through the River Cottage television program in 2009, and has since grown into a thriving community of more than 57,000 growers, sharers and helpers across the country. Now that Landshare is here in Australia, you are invited to come and take part in this fantastic initiative.

Landshare is for people who: 
• Want to grow vegetables but don't have anywhere to do it 
• Have a spare bit of land they're prepared to share 
• Can help in some way – from sharing knowledge and lending tools to helping out on the plot itself 
• Support the idea of freeing up more land for growing 
• Are already growing and want to join in the community

Visit Landshare to learn more about this fabulous concept and to connect with people near you.

Have a lovely day!… Anna
