Community Growing

English

Case Study: London Road Community Garden, Brighton

This short case study highlights an example of community growing on railway land, including stations and marginal land next to tracks. Groups that work on railway land need to go through a process to ensure the work is safe and they often require raised beds to avoid risk of contaminated ground. Network Rail owns all railway land but most land at stations is leased to train operators, who often have ‘Adopt a Station’ schemes.

Case Study: Stroud Community Agriculture

Built on cooperation and mutual support the risks and rewards of farming are shared between the farmers and consumers. The consumers commit themselves to supporting the farm and providing a fair income for the farmers. The farmers can then develop the health and fertility of the farm, its wildlife and environment. All the produce from the farm is shared between the supporting consumers or sold locally if there is a surplus.
