Useful Document: Somerset Land & Food Project Report

The Somerset Land & Food Project has been a three year access to land project, launched in 2009 and funded by the Big Lottery Local Food Programme. It was managed by Somerset Community Food, a grassroots charity founded in 2004, which aims to re-connect people with the social, health and environmental effects of growing, buying, preparing and eating local food. 

This report looks at the impact of the project and makes a number of interesting recommendations, intended to serve anyone thinking of setting up a similar access to land project. They also act as a roadmap for where future efforts should be focused to progress access to sufficient land and training in Somerset to build resilience against food poverty, changing climatic conditions and the fragmentation of communities.
