Allotments and Landshare

In Transition Buxton’s Position Statement we are in favour of foods being produced locally and we are in favour of more people growing more of their own food.   Amongst other things these will help to deliver a more sustainable future and lower CO2 emissions by reducing ‘food miles’.


Our Allotments project and Landshare projects have been very active in the past but presently are suspended.  If you would like to help us to re-invigorate either or both please contact us at

In the past the allotments project has helped people who are interested in having an allotment but not sure where to start by providing help and advice on how to get started with an allotment.  We’ve also helped clear old allotments as shown here.

Our Landshare scheme has put people who want to grow vegetables in touch with people who have too much garden for their own needs.  We’ve matched up quite a few people over the years and productive partnerships and new friendships have developed as a result.
