Welcome to Smallholding Scotland.

Established by smallholders, Smallholding Scotland is a unique, member-led organisation dedicated to representing, promoting and supporting smallholding across Scotland.

Purpose

Our purpose is to promote and support the sustainable stewardship and the purposeful use of smallholdings.

How it began

Following a call via the Smallholding Scotland Facebook group for volunteers to take forward the establishment of the new organisation, a steering group met in January 2017.

The steering group agreed that the new organisation should seek be established as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) and an application to the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) was made on 25th April 2017.

On 29th June 2017, Smallholding Scotland became registered as an incorporated body having charitable status. Our charity number is SCO47642.

The constitution and business plan for Smallholding Scotland SCIO can be read below.

The ten members of the steering group have taken on the role of interim trustees until such times as the membership elects trustees at the first AGM, scheduled for September 2018. All the trustees of Smallholding Scotland are committed to making the organisation genuinely member led, working in an open and transparent way on behalf of the membership.
