Stockwood appears in The Guardian – an alternative to Co-ops single land sale

Co-Operative Sale of land could be aimed at Chinese buyers. 

Martin Large of the Biodynamic Land Trust spoke out about the Co-Operative’s plans for sale of their land to a single buyer that could even be a foreign investor. Rush Farm rightly gets a mention as a perfect example of how community ownership can flourish.

Community ownership is not only possible but perfectly sustainable with the right mindset. Sebastian Parsons of our Board had this to say: “The Co-operative management is a total disaster area. No accountability to members. Who will give the farm workers a voice and when will the coop members find their voice?”
