Earth in Common
Rooted in Leith.
Rooted in Leith
We started as a movement of Leithers reclaiming common good land to make healthy food and nature accessible to ourselves and our children. For the first years of our existence, we were known as Leith Community Crops in Pots. Now we’re working to tackle a broken food system, climate change and social inequality locally, nationally and internationally.
We’re a radical action-based team on Leith Croft - community building and food growing are at our core. We’ve also got bigger ambitions. Our integrated vision of urban crofts can help generate community solidarity and wellbeing, strengthen the local economy, and contribute to community wealth building and skill-training. We aim to help communities across Scotland reclaim derelict urban green spaces to establish urban crofts. Together, we believe empowered urban communities could play a vital part in our move to food sovereignty.
