Welcome

Founded in 2007, we are a Community Food Growing Project committed to Organic Principles;

     

We grow fruit and vegetables on 2 acres of Soil Association accredited organic land within Stanmer Park. A member of Stanmer Organics we are located on the fringe of Brighton in the South Downs National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

We practice and teach sustainable agriculture with a sensitive approach towards land management, biodiversity and the environment. Our approach is informed by both traditional organic farming techniques, permaculture and the no-dig method.

Whilst encouraging healthy, active lifestyle, our work aims to develop a closer, more meaningful connection to our food, each other and to the soil.
