In April 2013 we were granted planning permission to develop our first three affordable smallholdings for new entrants to ecological agriculture. Since then three families have moved on and have been developing their livelihoods.
New Affordable Smallholdings Development
In April we will be asking supporters if you would fund the development of another site of smallholdings through the purchase of community shares. Please register your interest in receiving the share prospectus.

First Greenham Reach Monitoring Report Produced
As supporters will know, our pilot project is a cluster of 3 affordable and residential smallholdings for new entrants to ecological agriculture. We committed to reporting annually to the local planning authority on progress at the site. . Our first annual monitoring report is now available to download.
We report on the environmental, social and economic impact of the project, including: employment and voluntary opportunities created; the state of the soils and habitats; traffic generated; energy and water use; waste treatment; and on the visual impact of the project.
Our mission is to provide affordable opportunities for ecological land-based businesses in the UK. We support rural regeneration by developing affordable sites for farming, forestry and other rural enterprises which are viable and ecologically beneficial.
