The Living Vital project is about reconnecting with our bodies, our food and each other.
They have developed a community food growing project called Common Ground, a welcoming space in nature for refugees and migrants to learn and share knowledge about food growing, cooking, and other land-based skills and to meet new people. The project sits on a quarter-acre of Soil Association certified organic land, as part of Stanmer Organics cooperative in Stanmer Park, Brighton.
• Mondays (and occasional Saturdays) – 10am - 4pm (Sat 10.30-3)
Who is it for?:
Everyone. We are working to create a safe space for refugees and migrants to be in nature, enjoy organic sustainable food growing and cook produce and share food stories. It is also a space for everyone to come and feel welcome and build a community of food growers.
