Saunders Park Edible Garden

Run by Brighton & Hove Food Partnership, this little-known space is being turned from a forgotten and neglected space into a vibrant, edible community garden.

We have begun the vast job of creating a friendly, accessible and sustainable garden, bursting with edible plants, fruit and vegetables but there is still much more to be done. Volunteers are invited to help out and become part of the story of creating and transforming this garden.

Sessions can include any of the following activities: weeding and clearing, sowing seeds/bulbs, digging new beds, cutting back bushes, clearing around the pond area, watering, harvesting, making tea etc. There are a range of tasks to suit all abilities.

 

Saunders Park Edible Garden was a Finalist in the Groundwork Awards for Best Community Garden in the UK in 2017.

Work in the garden during 2017-18 is kindly supported by the Marit And Hans Rausing Fund, via Sussex Community Foundation.


When:

The team of volunteers, led by our community gardener Rosie Linford, meet fortnightly from 9.30am-12.30pm.

Facilities:

Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather and sturdy shoes (no sandals or open-toe shoes please, walking boots or sturdy trainers are advised).

Who is it for?:

Any under 18’s must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Everyone is welcome to attend, you don’t need any gardening experience.
