A good idea Tom but the UK has had a scheme running for a few years now - doesn't involve leasing or finance - more on a casual basis which seems to work well.
I'd imagine lease laws may be different here - most landlords are simply interested in the money the building generates and don't bother too much with the garden space.
The UK also doesn't have as much "spare" land as the US - the large landowners here aren't particularly willing to divvy up their land here either.
You might find it of interest to look up Allotments in the UK too - that'll give you an idea of what goes on here.
Best of luck with the Sunny Patch thing tho
