The Farm and Garden National Trust aims to:
• Eradicate poverty: On 100m2 it is possible to grow all the fresh food a family of five needs, year round. With a bit of training, such micro-farms can also provide many income generation opportunities.
• Foster employment: 500m2 of land can create one full time job, plus many other spin-off income earning opportunities.
• Improve people’s physical and social health: People’s overall health and wellbeing will improve through their eating of organically grown vegetables and their physical participation in cooperative micro-farming projects.
• Protect the environment: The Trust helps to improve the environment and also help reduce the carbon footprint through supporting organic methods of farming and local production.
