Support Yorkley Court Community Farm!

For the last two and a half years people have been occupying land at Yorkley Court in Forest of Dean, with the aim of establishing a sustainable community farm. The land ownership has been contested due to a complex and unique scenario in the farm’s history.

On the 26th February, a judge granted a possession order to an un-liked local millionaire property developer. A timeframe for eviction was given. We now face the court bailiffs on Thursday 26th March at 10am.

The house has been taken over by Brian Bennet and the other areas of the land are still being defended.

Yorkley Court Community Farm has been (and still is) an inspiring example of reclaim the fields, bringing to light issues & putting into practice food sovereignty, agroecology, access to land, permaculture, anarchism, collective living & more… It is a site of struggle that needs your solidarity!

We really value all the support so far. We still need practical and financial support

Money is needed immediately for:

* Legal Fees (£2500)
* Food (min £200 wholesale food order to feed everyone on site)
* Secure lock up hire (£80 per month)
* Petrol money & bridge costs (£200+)
* Expenses for legal observers traveling to the site (£100+)
* Sleeping materials (£30)
* Phone credit for site phones (£20)
