We believe access to land for growing food to share should be available for all. Many people in Brighton and Hove have no access to a garden or allotment and we want to change that. Gardening shared land keeps us connected to the natural world, other people and the food we eat – it makes us happy! Let's work together to create opportunities all year round.

We are inviting all our volunteer gardeners and new people too to pledge as Friends. This crowdfunding campaign has been developed in response to the hundreds of requests for PLOT 22 to host more accessible gardening opportunities at weekends, after school and through the summer evenings. Together we can make it possible.


Friends can:

Make a one off donation of £25 and you can join us in the garden for all the events you'll be helping to fund. Take home a share of the spare veg too! 

Attend all the events enabled by this campaign
Bring up to 2 children per adult to the family friendly sessions
Use 6 guest passes over the year
Have priority booking on additional PLOT 22 events.
Receive a free fair trade PLOT 22 canvas tote bag if you are one of the first 120 people to pledge.

Sessions will be hosted on a voluntary basis by experienced PLOT 22 gardeners so there will always be someone familiar on site to ask questions and help Friends feel at home.
