Landworkers' Alliance

Landworkers' Alliance

The Landworkers’ Alliance is a grassroots union of farmers, growers and land-based workers with a mission to improve the livelihoods of our members and create a better food system for everyone.

We work for a future where farmers are able to work with dignity and earn a decent living, and people can access healthy, affordable food from local producers.

The Landworkers' Alliance (LWA) is a UK-wide union of farmers, foresters and land-based workers. The LWA was founded in 1985 and has over 3,000 members.

  • Education: The LWA provides training and education to its members on a range of topics, such as business management, marketing and production. The LWA also runs a number of events and conferences to share information and ideas.
  • Support: The LWA provides support to its members in a variety of ways, such as through legal advice, financial assistance and social events. The LWA also has a network of local groups that provide support and advice to members in their area.

The LWA is a valuable resource for anyone who is involved in food and land-based work. The LWA's work is making a real difference in the lives of its members and in the food system as a whole.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
