The Soil Association Land Trust safeguards legacies of land, providing a safe haven and preventing land being lost from farming and growing. Land is donated by retiring farmers and landowners, often those with no dependents, ensuring their life’s work continues into the future. Their generosity means we can also provide opportunities for people to enter farming, often for the first time.

The Soil Association Land Trust is a separate charity linked to the Soil Association and governed by its own Board of Trustees. Please follow this link to find out more about our work.
