Urban Farming is growing rapidly across the globe as a way of reducing food miles, engaging the local community and providing ultra fresh produce to local people. Soilless techniques such as aeroponic vertical farming allow you to bring horticulture directly into the urban environment, into places you can't grow with soil. This seminar will look at these different techniques and how you can grow at home or create a business growing for your local area.

Join us to celebrate our walled garden. With a series of talks, seminars, signings and workshops, we're encouraging people to connect with the great outdoors and celebrate gardens big and small.


As Plumpton College's centre of horticultural excellence, we want to raise awareness of routes into horticulture. Gardening Week will offer garden inspiration, knowledge and inspiration from top gardeners in the field.


We celebrate local growers practicing sustainable horticulture methods. Come along to our talks and learn more about the ways contemporary gardeners are becoming more sustainable. Our gardens are full of unusual and exotic species. At our Gardening Week, you can meet and learn with the people that care for them. From No Dig to the Art of Mossballs, our calendar is bursting with tools and tricks for a flourishing garden.


This event is part of our community outreach. Whilst most of our Gardening Week events are free to all, some will have a fee to cover the costs of materials. One Garden Brighton supports the local community to build skills and inspire sustainable change. We are a space for local people to connect and enjoy nature. We welcome community groups to use the gardens and historic buildings for their events and workshops, as well as utilising our expert teams to learn more about the benefits of being in a green space.
