Today, the LSA Charitable Trust is principally involved in advancing education in horticulture, but also has an important role in the relief of poverty for former members, employees and tenants of the Land Settlement Association Limited.
The Trust’s interests have been focused upon fresh produce and market gardening, in light of its history; we have a sympathy for social enterprise, and cooperative models of operation: aligning social value with commercial viability. We believe in the value of quality horticulture and the importance of innovation, believing in a bright future for this essential industry for the nation’s future.
In recent years, we are delighted to have established the successful LSA Charitable Trust Fellowship scheme in partnership with key organisations in horticulture.
We have a long-standing partnership with RABI – the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution – to support those previously associated with the Land Settlement Association.
The Trust is not currently considering applications for small grants.
