We’ve been heartened and humbled by the huge amount of support and effort made when like-minded folk, seeking to change things, get together. Your investment in our work gives us the confidence and courage that what we’re doing is a real, viable option for helping effect change.

As Executive Director, Cate Chapman, says,

“One of the main reasons the Ecological Land Co-op exists is to create access to land for sustainable uses. We live in an environment of high land prices and very unequal land ownership. Our model is one way of returning land to community ownership and ecological use so we can be sure that land is being sustainably managed not just for the current generation but for future generations and for biodiversity as a whole.”

A community share offer is a simple and direct way to engage with a cause you believe in. Moving your money from an indifferent, profit-driven agenda to a community of interest can be empowering, as you’re supporting a common cause.

Last chance to invest in The @Ecological Land Cooperative’s community share offer : providing affordable land for ecological livelihoods.

The @Ecological Land Cooperative believe the creation of sustainable rural livelihoods is one of the best ways to address our most pressing environmental and social problems. They do this by purchasing agricultural land, applying for planning permission for low-impact smallholdings with temporary residences.

As a co-operative their work is only made possible with the support of their members – the public.

Help make the future of truly sustainable ecological farming a reality, today.

Investments between from £500 up to £40,000 are still open.

With Brexit looming and an uncertain future for farmers, the horizon of climate change drawing in, and the power of big business continuing, we truly believe getting support from our members is the way to go.

Thank you!
