Residents of Yorkley Court Community Farm would like to say a huge THANK
YOU for the support & solidarity received so far...

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.

/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.
