Somerset Land & Food

Somerset Land and Food took place from 2010 - 2013. It was an exciting and innovative project that aimed to:

  • Match available land with local community groups interested in growing food. We did this by organising conferences and events, as well as through mapping demand and availability of land on our website foodmapper.
  • Develop the range of skills that will enable many more people to access affordable, locally grown and healthy food. We did this through our growing training and support for projects where people can learn these skills.
  • We achieved our ambitious target of converting 100 hectares of land around 10 market towns into community food production by the end of 2012.
