new members and investment needed for land project

Jan 13, 2015

The Agroecological Land Initiative is an organisation created to advocate and implement agroecological methods in the UK to help secure food sovereignty, energy independence, and environmental regeneration in a way that is financially viable and socially just.

They aim to create a model of co-sufficient community farming and forestry to demonstrate the benefits of communal low-impact living for the creation of rural enterprise.

To this end they have developed an innovative membership-based equity investment scheme for a co-operative company that will allow for different levels of investment while retaining a principle of common ownership.

If this is something that interests you they are currently looking for additional members and further investment for their first project at Red Pig Farm, Llandeilo, Wales.

For more information see the brochure and business plan available on their website (agroecology.co.uk). Or contact redpig@agroecology.co.uk
