Time and time again on my channel I get comments from people saying how much they wish they had land to grow their own food so I’ve decided to mention a potential method to overcome this. It won’t work for everyone but if it means one or two of you can start following your growing dreams then I would deem this video as a success.

    Full of ideas, you are. Another informative idea from you for others to therorise on, cool. There are some things to consider…Try and get a garden with side, or bacck access. Has an outside tap. Or power point. Living in the beg smelly, I found that not all gardens have all three and they DO help. The leccy thing needs to be for the possible start-up work, but not absolute. The water might be metered, so a drain pipe idea could help there. And the side access is important to get to the meat of the work before and after your new friend wants to leave their bed to get to their door to let you in.

    Great Idea. I did something very similar this summer. I do have a little vegetable garden but I don't have a lawn where I could "harvest" fine grass clippings as mulch for my beds. So I just went down my street and slipped little notes into my neighbours' letter boxes. Most of them did not reply but a hand ful now bring me their clippings anytime they mow their lawns. And I have the perfect mulch supply. 🙂

    land in Ireland is a particularly difficult matter. we have a long history with land, it's a long story. my CSA is currently looking for land in the Dublin area but there would be no way to buy it.

    We did this with a friend. She has a huge side yard and we put up raised beds to grow veggies, and we pruned her multiple fruit trees and roses.

    In return we got roses, rose hips, herbs and fruit and only had to share some of our produce with her. It was pretty awesome.

    My grandfather managed to do that through the 1960s and the way to late 1980s. He had a neighbour with a piece of land that wasn't being used, ended up asking him if he could use the land to farm, to which his neighbour said yes. He never asked for a percentage of the crops or the profit that my grandparents made out of selling the excess. They ended up becoming good friends.

    Love all your content, hope your keep sharing your knowledge with us.

    Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas,

    Only issue with that is being a home owner you risk if someone you allowed to be on your land, and say they break a leg somehow, or get hurt on your property, the HOMEOWNER is liable for that persons medical bills. Sure we have homeowners insurance for that, but in this day and age to many "sue happy" people. Personally that is not a risk I would take.

    Ask neighbors if they would be willing to rent out a part of their section. Asking the local council as well could be another idea, sometimes health centers have community gardens too. Sometimes small continuities have facebook pages where you can buy or sell, consider asking on those pages.

    I garden with a friend. She has a large yard and I live in an apartment, but I've been an avid gardener for many many years. So, I got up the nerve to ask her if she would be willing to share her yard. She was delighted. That was four years ago and we have an incredible garden. Lots of fruit trees and berries, lots of perennials, and all kinds of vegetables. It's wonderful to garden together, even though I do the bulk of the work. So, if you have a friend with a uard, don't be shy, ask.

    Hello Huw. This is a great idea which must be handled with care. I have 1.25 acres of which about a third is under control the rest grows bracken, brambles and nettles in abundance. Next month I will – er – celebrate my 75th birthday and I would be delighted to share some of the area with another or others. There is just the slight niggle over what you might be getting into.

    Hold on let me see if I understood correctly I live in the USA and my dream is to someday live in the UK I’ve always loved It i love the cold and rain .Dont ask me why but I’ve always felt drawn to it.So if I want to buy a home with some land I can’t right away ? I have to be on a waiting list ? Is there some specific requirements to get a house with a land?
