Brighton Permaculture Trust

Permaculture plot

The Permaculture plot is a LAND (Learning And Network Demonstration) site and shows Permaculture in action, working in the real world, with real world challenges. It creates a regular opportunity to act towards the sustainability and resilience we at Brighton Permaculture Trust are passionate about.

At the Permaculture plot, we have a polytunnel with seedling and drying areas, nursery, diverse forest garden, annuals, herbs and edible perennial beds, a sociable firepit, wood shed, pizza oven and more!

It is also a site used for:

Experimenting with new and emerging small scale sustainable growing methods
Propagating Sussex apple trees for community orchards, AND we have a perennial nursery where hardy low maintenance plants are grown and sold to generate funds for the Plot Sharing. We open the plot to Forest Schools, for tours and activities with students, at Stanmer Organics, Apple Day and Permaculture Open days, and it is used in several of the Brighton Permaculture Trust courses and workshops.      

How to arrange a visit:
