We offer use of a polytunnel fruit cages, growing plots, an orchard, lawned areas and a wildlife pond.

There is also a woodwork studio, rest room, kitchen, toilets and plenty of parking. Facilities for disabled users are provided.

With plenty of seating and shade and a variety of special areas including those for quiet contemplation the Landshare offers a beautiful, secure, and tranquil managed space.

We aspire to support the whole community; everyone is welcome to use the beneficial qualities of gardening and outdoor activity as a way to improve their health and well-being. In particular we offer social and therapeutic horticulture to adults and young people with a range of physical, learning and mental health challenges as well as Alzheimer’s and dementia clients.

A group of corporate volunteers hiring the site

Most of the grassed areas of the site are available for hire on a one off or regular basis for educational and leisure use. A bespoke outdoor classroom is also planned. We can host outdoor adult education classes, family picnics, work get-togethers and managed children’s parties, and are open to more innovative requests e.g. for small weddings and other outdoor celebrations.

A plot for hire at Jealott's Hill Community Landshare
Organised groups of 4 or more are welcomed to hire a ‘group growing plot’, on an annual basis, similar to an allotment but with the ethos of sharing what is grown. A wide variety of sizes are available, tools can be borrowed and there is plenty of advice and support on hand. We do not hire plots to individuals but welcome individual volunteers to cultivate our splendid central circular beds, the polytunnel, fruit cages and orchard with a share of the produce as reward.
