The Community Land Project is looking for land in the Wrexham county area that we can work with to create a community land trust.
The aim is to hold land in trust. To hold in trust for the community – and for future generations. Within this trust holding the land, plots will be able to be leased – allowing individuals, families and other groups to direct and manage their own lives and businesses with the support of those in neighbouring plots – community. As stewards of the plots, there are rights, responsibilities and shared agreements in relation to the earth, nature and eachother.
We are looking to hold different sites for this – particularly around those with similar and the same aims, ethics and values, and/or simply wish to live in the same place. We are looking to live with respect for animals for example, and respect for the earth.
We are currently working alongside existing community organisations with the intention of creating a peaceful and sustainable environment for the community. A place where the local and wider communities will have access to learning, skill sharing and life enhancing experiences. We will offer this through organic growing, forest gardening, environmental conservation, permaculture, woodland skills, alternative technologies, complementary healthcare, music, arts and traditional crafts. We will work with local, natural materials for homes and workplaces giving an example of how a community can live with care for the environment and each other.
At the heart of this project will be a community hub building with community gardens providing fresh produce – a meeting place and educational center for local and wider communities – with space for workshops, training, a cafe and community events.
By creating a land trust the land will be protected for future generations to steward the land with respect to the environment and communities around it.
If you have any land for sale or would like to be involved in any way please feel free to get in touch. We are looking for approximately 23-70 acres (and are also looking at other sizes outside this area). We are particularly actively looking in North Wales and are open to many other areas too.
