One Garden

There are two car parks within Stanmer Park that are managed by Brighton & Hove City Council.

We look forward to welcoming you and your four-legged friends. Dogs are allowed in One Garden Brighton in all indoor and outdoor spaces. Paws on the floor, and short leads please.

There are bins positioned throughout the garden which is sorted and recycled.

We have recycled and reclaimed materials throughout the garden wherever possible. Our boardwalk is made from Ash trees within Stanmer Estate, milled and installed by the Plumpton College grounds and gardens team. The runoff rainwater is captured and filtered through the beds in this garden. Old ducting from within the glasshouses has been repurposed into planters and tiles from the old bothy buildings used within pathways. You will be able to find many more examples on your visit to One Garden Brighton.

One Garden Brighton is proudly presented and managed by Plumpton College. Our Horticultural centre of excellence for training and education is based at One Garden Brighton and you will regularly see students working within the garden spaces, developing designs and maintaining the grounds.

We have strong links with our local community, whether its use of spaces within One Garden Brighton or our excellent team of volunteers. If you wish to get involved, host an event or your local business within One Garden Brighton email or through this sign-up form.

Please bear with us whilst we open and prepare our spaces for use. As we still have to adhere to a number of COVID-19 government restrictions there may be a delay in our response. WE will be in touch in due course.

Please be aware we have a wait list for our volunteer programme.

The Palm House and Long Border were unfortunately not part of the original restoration project funding. Our ambition is to restore these spaces for you to enjoy, and we are currently crowdfunding to be able to restore and open the Palm House.

All we ask that is you supply your own pair of steel toe cap boots for safety reasons, clothing appropriate for carrying out physical tasks, including wet weather clothing when required, ie waterproof jacket and trousers. We’ll supply you with any other safety equipment that you require to work in One Garden Brighton.

Please bring your own lunch if you intend to volunteer for a full day.

No. We encourage volunteers to use sustainable methods of transport where possible but do have paid car parking and disabled parking on site. The park is also served by the number 78 bus (into the park - weekends only) and the 5B and 25 buses (to the park gates).

We encourage all ages from 11 to 100! If you are between the ages of 11 and 16, we do ask that you have written consent from your parent or guardian.

Yes - where at all possible. We will do all we can to accommodate your individual needs.

There is no fixed time, but we hope that you’ll feel able to commit to volunteer as much time as you can. Hopefully you’ll decide that you want to carry on volunteering with us on a regular basis.

We ask that you book in your volunteer session prior to your arrival, with as much notice as you can give. Equally if you can’t make session that you’ve booked onto, that you give as much notice as possible that you won’t be able to make it.

You will be working alongside a trained member of staff that assist you in any tasks you carry out, making sure you learn the correct skills and get the most out of your time with us. You will also have an induction prior to using any form of machinery.

Yes, you’ll be covered by our Public Liability Insurance as is every other member of staff working in One Garden Brighton.

As One Garden Brighton is part of Plumpton College, an educational training centre, we are required to undertake DBS checks on all regular volunteers over the age of 18.
