Our Business Plan


2017 - 2020 Business PlanOur Business Plan sets out our goals
and plans until 2020. We intend to develop around
20 new smallholdings within this period. This is an
update of our previous 2015 - 2020 Business Plan -
particularly the financial projections - which was
produced with the support of Holger Westphely of
Eastside Primetimers. We are also grateful  to The
Big Potential, SE Assist, and the Charities Aid
Foundation for their support.

Since then three families have moved on and have been developing their livelihoods. You can read our latest monitoring report here.
