This coming weekend we are gathering on the land at Field Farm, Stapleford, Notts to discuss setting up a sustainable community here this spring. Acoustic music and food on the friday night, and a chance to check out the site and local area.

Bring seeds and matierals to prepare the site for when we are ready to move in permanently

Although we are gathering on the friday we will be camped on site after wednesday so feel free to pop up then

We found out about this place after this message from a local:

Gareth Whitedog 20 March at 18:43 Report
Hi
Hope you are well.
Thought we'd give you a heads-up about a nice opportunity...

There's an old empty farmhouse behind where we live, in a couple of fields, which have been left fallow for ten years or so, and have become a bit of a wildlife haven, and even host a couple of endangered species, we think.
The owners of the land intend to build on it, and current Tory plans will make it even easier for them to do so. Nobody in the village wants that.
It occurs to us that if the farmhouse were to be squatted by some community minded people, who put it to good use, then it would make it somewhat more difficult for the building to happen, and would also give good scope for a high-profile campaign, where the media is concerned. You know, "Big-hearted eco-warriors in face-off with evil developers trying to destroy nature reserve..."

We feel pretty sure that if anyone were to do this, and they did it right, then they would probably get quite a bit of support from the local community, and they could certainly count on support from us, some of the closest neighbours.

Interested?

Here's a Google maps link to the place:  http://maps.google.co.uk/?ie=UTF8&ll=52.945716%2C-1.265466&spn=0.011572%2C0.033023&t=h&z=16

Let us know what you think.

Travel from Sheffield involves a train to langley mill followed by a bus to outside the entrance road.

Also Buses from derby and local area to Stapleford.

There is also much other devolopment planned for this area including devolopment of Trowell Moor for open cast mining so this area is under a lot of threat.
