Join Us

We are always happy to welcome new members! You can join simply to lend your support and participate as a member, or you may want to invest in our community shares.

Steward members
We are particularly keen to hear from individuals and organisations that are managing land ecologically - regardless of whether you would like to farm on ELC land or your own, or on land owned by someone else. We greatly benefit from the judgement and experience of people who work with land. Membership is just £1 as we recognise that many stewards are on low incomes; but if you wish to invest more that will certainly help us do more. To apply to be a steward member please download, print and complete the form below and send to Ecological Land Co-operative, Unit B04, The Brighton Eco-centre, Brighton, BN1 3PB or email

Supporter (investor) members
If you are not managing land, but want to give your support to those who do, you are equally welcome. Our supporter members are the backbone of our finance and have skills and knowledge that we often draw upon. Anyone can be an ELC supporter. Find out more on our investor page here.

Donations. We of course welcome donations! You can make a monetary donation using the paypal button below or by cheque to:

The Ecological Land Co-operative
Unit B04, The Brighton Eco-centre
Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 3PB

Or if you would like to make a donation of land, or office or farm equipment we would love to hear from you.
