Saunders Park

 

Saunders Park Edible Garden

Tucked away behind Shabitat on Lewes Road, 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.

  

Regular volunteer sessions

The team of volunteers, led by our community gardener Rosie Linford meet on the first and third Wednesday of every month from 9.30am-12.30pm. Everyone is welcome to attend, you don’t need any gardening experience.

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.

Address

Saunders Park, behind Shabitat, Lewes Road, Brighton, BN2 4AE. Access via the path on Hollingdean Road or through the park and up the stairs next to the slide. We meet by the pond which is directly behind Shabitat.

 

Do I need to bring anything?

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

Any under 18’s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
