Glen Co-operative Land Trust

Dear Friend,

It’s with a feeling of excitement and urgency that we’re writing to invite you to join us in a community venture with a difference.

Twenty acres of mixed woodland and pasture in a secluded part of the Glen of Aherlow, Co. Tipperary, are up for sale – complete with an OPW heritage site and public access to St. Berihert’s bubbling well – and we want to conserve this naturally-regenerated spot in perpetuity.

Details of the vision and aims of the Glen Co-operative Land Trust are attached, along with a membership contract, and we’d ask that you give whatever help you can – either by joining the co-op, or passing this message to someone who may be in a position to help out.

The debt-free, collective action model we’re using is a proven one, as you will see; and, while times are financially hard in Ireland and abroad, we believe that true wealth can come from people working creatively together, creating new visions out of the rubble of failed ones.

If we don’t act soon then we’ll be unsuccessful, leaving the land’s future in limbo. Feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive, with much interest and some shares already sold, but the real work of getting more shareholders on board starts now.

With Love and Optimism,

The Founders of the Glen Co-operative Land Trust

Ruth, Sara, John, Mandi, Tom & Adam
