Tidenham Landshare

Tidenham Landshare produces fruit and vegetables for Hanley Farm Shop – produce is grown a yard or so away from the shop so no food miles here!

What is Landshare?

Landshare brings together people who have a passion for home-grown food, connecting those who have land to share with those who need land for cultivating food. Since its launch through River Cottage in 2009 it has grown into a thriving community of more than 55,000 growers, sharers, and helpers.

It’s for people who:

  • Want to grow their own fruit and veg but don’t have anywhere to do it
  • Have a spare bit of land they’re prepared to share
  • Can help in some way – from sharing knowledge and lending tools to helping out on the plot itself
  • Support the idea of freeing up more land for growing
  • Are already growing and want to join in the community

Tidenham Landshare Project

Transition Chepstow announced ‘Tidenham Landshare Project’ in February 2011. With the generous support of landowner Lyndon Edwards, local residents are being offered loaned plots of land to grow their own fruit and vegetables in return for either sharing their excess produce with Lyndon or paying a small annual rental fee. The site is 1 mile north of Tidenham, neighbouring the Hanley Court Business Centre and Hanley Farm Shop – immediately accessible from the A48. Growers are required to sign a ‘growing agreement’ with the landowner, Lyndon Edwards. To express an interest in having a plot, please email food@transitionchepstow.org.uk. Returning this information is only an expression of interest and does not commit you to the project. Your details will be held by Transition Chepstow for the purposes of the ‘Tidenham Landshare Project’ only and will be shared with third parties only with your written prior approval.
