The Land of Roots
The Land of Roots Ltd is a co-operative company that owns and manages Cooke’s West Wood, 15.5 acres of land just outside of Durham City. We manage the land using permaculture methods, ethics and principles. The land includes permanent pasture and woodland. The four of us produce a variety of products from the land including vegetables, salad, herbs, lamb, charcoal, willow baskets, chickens, eggs and fruit. Our community is small, consisting of two families with occasional visitors and plenty of volunteers. The Land of Roots co-op owns our land and we trade as another co-op called Abundant Earth.
