28/4/09 – Should Swindon join River Cottage Landshare scheme?

Cllr Dale Heenan : “I have asked Swindon Borough Council to investigate whether they are willing to support an idea promoted by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on his Channel 4 series River Cottage, and an officer is now looking into it.

I think Landshare is a fantastic idea, with the potential to help bring neighbours together, reduce food miles for local grown produce and it’s a great
way for children to re-learn the skills of growing their
own food. 

People register for Landshare through the Channel 4 website and it trys to link people
who want to grow their own fruit & veg to a space where they can
grow it and also provide a network of help and expertise.

Should Swindon pro-actively support the Landshare ideas in addition to Allotments? Please let me know”
