Growing opportunity near Totnes

Mar 7, 2013

Hi
I have land near Totnes that I would like to rent out (long term) to people who would like to live a low impact lifestyle and grow food, etc.
I am a herbalist, and 1 of my students is keen to set up a medicinal garden on the land. There is also a salad business I am happy to pass onto whoever rents the land. There is space for 3 more individuals /couples. I am looking for experienced growers, able to work with others, keen on involving volunteers from the local community, and willing to apply for grants. This would give additional income running volunteer sessions and involving local people, maybe service users.
Thank you
Frances
