About

Tortoise Shell Housing Co-operative

Our aim is to create an affordable, communal living
situation in as sustainable a manner as possible in
order to create a practical working
example of a better future.
The Tortoise Shell Co-operative is looking to buy a
property with 10+ acres of land situated
geographically around mid/south Wales.
The co-operative aims to set up ecologically sound
working projects that will enable the local
community, and communities from further afield, to
engage and participate in a range of
sustainable activities, such as;

To enhance bio-diversity through native tree plant
ing, coppicing, hedgerow management and wildflower planting.

To promote food self-sufficiency through organic food
growing and community food-growing projects.

To promote energy self-sufficiency through retro-f
itting insulation and micro-generation of appropriate
low-impact technology.

To promote the use of traditional crafts and skill-share workshops.
