Rooted in Cumbria

The Federation of Cumbria Commoners is a member-led organisation dedicated to promoting commoning in Cumbria. Our overall aim is to maintain and improve the viability of hill farming on common land.

We want this website to:

  • Inform you about new issues in commoning
  • Let you know what we are doing
  • Make our voice heard all over the world and much more

Visit to the uplands of northern Spain, May 2010

Three members of our committee were recently invited on a tour to look at common land farming systems in Northern Spain. Our group was privileged to meet a number of farmers and various environmentalists, researchers and administrators with whom they were collaborating.

This project was part-funded by the European Forum on Nature Conservation and Pastoralism as part of their 2010 work programme supported by the European Commission (DG Environment) under the Life+ NGO support grant.
