Greenham Reach Smallholdings - Devon


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 Smallholding Proposal - Sussex


In 2017, The ELC purchased a 7.5-hectare field in the village of Arlington,East Sussex.

We are seeking permission from Wealden District Council to establish three affordable residential smallholdings for new entrants to ecological agriculture.
