How do you grow strawberries in Scotland? Can you post a picture of your greenhouse, please? Are there any differences between flower colour in the Netherlands and those in Liguria? Today I discovered Landshare, an online social community dedicated to… peasants, farmers, landowners! Here I present some information directly from the website. Landshare brings together people who have a passion for home-grown food, connecting those who have land to share with those who need land for cultivating food. Since its launch through River Cottage in 2009 it has grown into a thriving community of more than 55,000 growers, sharers and helpers.
Landshare seems for people who:

  • Want to grow veg but don’t have anywhere to do it
  • Have a spare bit of land they’re prepared to share
  • Can help in some way – from sharing knowledge and lending tools to helping out on the plot itself
  • Support the idea of freeing up more land for growing
  • Are already growing and want to join in the community

Come coltivi le fragole in Scozia? Puoi postare una foto della tua piccola serra e vediamo se la mia è adeguata? I tulipani olandesi sono più ‘colorati’ di quelli liguri? Qualcuno mi può suggerire i concimi adatti per…? Ecco, questo è quanto si può leggere e condividere in Landshare, una comunità online di origine inglese che raccoglie coltivatori evoluti e digitali. Registrarsi a Landshare è semplice e altrettanto lo è condividere materiale, foto, e molto altro. Incredibile, vero?
