What is LAND?
The LAND network was set up in response to the realisation that many people learn through seeing and doing. In order to make permaculture accessible to as many people as possible, we needed to have a way of sharing learning without people having to commit to doing a full permaculture design course.
A LAND Centre is a permaculture demonstration site that people can visit to have an experience of permaculture design and techniques in practice. LAND stands for Learning, Action, Network and Demonstration. You can read more about what that means here.
There are now over 40 LAND Centres in the UK, all of which offer a unique learning experience. They range in scale from domestic gardens and allotments, to community gardens and orchards, to established food forests and large scale regenerative farms.
Many LAND Centres welcome group visits, run courses and have spaces available to hire. Click on the LAND Centre pin on the map to read the centre profile, find out about opportunities to collaborate and get to in touch.
Our vision is to have a LAND Centre in every community, serving as a hub of inspiration, connection and learning. Could your site be the next LAND Centre in our network? Find out how to become a LAND Centre.
