The farm that feeds its shareholders


The National Trust has announced it's releasing some of its land to provide 1000 allotments. The initiative comes as demand for growing spaces is at an all time high, with more than 100,000 people currently on allotment waiting lists

But one group of people in Stroud, Gloucestershire were so keen to grow-their-own they've created a whole farm. Around 200 members now pay into the not-for-profit Stroud Community Agriculture scheme

One of the founding members, Jade Bashford and farmer, Mark Harrison explain how it works.
