Home Page > News > Communities Buying Land

On the 27th of November Sophie and Jay from the GBY  board spent the day in Birmingham at an event organised by The Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens specially for communities interested in purchasing land. They heard about some inspiring case studies where communities have successfully raised tens of thousands of pounds to fund similar projects across the country. They also spoke in depth with a land agent about legalities of our situation and the possibility of a purchase. Both Sophie and Jay came back with a wealth of knowledge and new ideas for future fundraising and campaigning.
