Evidence suggests that there are currently significant challenges to the expansion of smaller scale farming and growing in the UK. Despite these challenges, there are also well evidenced opportunities.

This report provides an overview of the development, outcomes, challenges, lessons learned and the next steps of the ten projects which took part in the Growing Livelihoods initiative, a partnership project between the Carnegie UK Trust, Plunkett Foundation and the Land Settlement Association Charitable Trust (LSACT).

The report aims to provide information and inspiration to those currently working in or seeking to enter the smaller scale growing sector.
