Overview: Rent

When land is going to be taken on for a community gardening project or any other food-growing project, it is usual to have a discussion about rent. Due to the unique nature of community growing sites, it is very difficult to give guidance on a typical rent (price per acre). CLAS did a survey and found groups paying between zero and £1,000 per acre.

This paper will help you calculate what rent should be paid. It can also be used to quantify the value to the project of rent-free (zero rent) or a rent paid in kind.
