Ideas Blog-An allotment or land share scheme?

Autumn Watch this week features a group of school children in their local wildlife-rich cider orchard.  This gives me great inspiration for what we could do in Horncastle.     http://bbc.co.uk/i/n5bty/

What about some sort of land in common scheme?

This might well be an idea close to the hearts of some of our group.

So is there any way that those with more than enough land of their own, could allow someone else a share of their garden for a limited amount of time, just to see how it would work?

What are the pitfalls and can you think how this might work?

Does anyone have any knowledge of other groups doing this?
