Finding Land: Foodmapper


Foodmapper website link

Foodmapper was developed by Somerset Community Food as a way of mapping land both currently in use and potentially available for use by community groups wanting to grow food. It was developed primarily to cover Somerset, but has been extended across the South West England region.

Using FoodMapper in your area you can map:

  • land currently in use for community growing
  • land used as allotments where there are waiting lists
  • land potentially available for community growing
  • location and contact details of groups looking for land.

You can also map:

  • local food producers
  • local food initiatives of all sorts ie: seedsaving groups, food co-ops, local food retailers, farm shops, farmers and country markets
  • local food events ie: Apple Days, plant swaps, growing and cooking courses and practical training of all sorts.
