Our programmes take place at a private south-facing plot at Stanmer Organics in Stanmer Park, Brighton, which is bursting with and surrounded by nature.
The 900 square metre plot has a number of ponds, a small orchard, native trees, wildflowers and herbs, a fire pit, and areas of grass.
We erect a large gazebo if shelter is needed. A wood burner, firepit and blankets are available to keep you warm. Camp lights and fairy lights are available if it gets dark. We have the odd deck chair and plenty of camping stools. If you prefer to sit on the ground, we have ground- sheets to sit on if the grass is wet.
We have a quiet, secluded area that you can retreat to if you need time alone.
There are compost toilets 250 meters away. Compost toilets look similar to conventional toilets, but there is no flushing mechanism. The compost toilets near our plot are set up in separate wooden cubicles with lockable doors. You can use toilet paper as normal, but Sanitary products should be placed in the bin provided unless you are sure that they are made of 100% natural materials, which is rare. There is a tap and soap available to wash your hands. Alternatively, if open, plumbed toilets are available at the One Garden, 570 meters away (8 mins walk).
There is a tap with drinking water at our plot, and we offer tea, coffee, herbal teas and hot chocolate. Only cows’ milk is supplied, so if you have any other preferences, please feel free to bring your own.
