Boat share case study

| Uncategorized | July 30, 2009

boat share ase study, Lefkas, Greece

I’ve just added another yours2share case study about a successful boat share sale made just a few months ago.

Margaret Flatman from Norwich in Norfolk sold her 1/5th share in a Hunter Legend 340 based in Nidri, Lefkas, Greece to Peter Dow from Topsham, near Exeter in Devon.  The share was advertised in October 2008 and was sold the following month.

I really appreciate Margaret and Peter’s help in allowing me to use them as a case study.

Allotments on the Economist

| Landshare, sharing, Uncategorized | April 17, 2009

I’ve just commented on an article in last week’s Economist, my favourite newspaper.  I don’t remember ever reading about allotments in it before, so this probably reflects the substantial change in the middle classes that make up their readership over the last year or so.  Tending your allotment is no longer the preserve of slightly batty hippies or retirees.

Anyhow here’s the article: allotments, take this job and shovel it and here is the listing of yours2share’s current garden shares.

Home for honey bees

| Landshare, Uncategorized | February 1, 2009

I was delighted to see this recent yours2share ad.  The member is looking for someone with some spare land in HIgh Wycombe for his honey bees and their hives.

Land wanted to share for honey bee hives

As the idea of land sharing takes hold of people’s imaginations, fruit and vegetables are not the only thing for which people are looking for a small unused plot of land.  There are many people who dream of rearing honey bees, hens, a couple of goats, cows or pigs, if only they had some land.
