Volunteering at Seaford Community Garden

Seaford Community Garden

Register your Interest

Are you interested in gardening and spending time outdoors with friendly company? We need people with gardening experience and also those who want to learn.

Seaford Community Garden is a delightful working garden run by volunteers. Tucked away within the Crouch Gardens and behind the Peace Garden, in central Seaford, the garden is as much about community as it is about gardening.

Within the garden there are many different areas including flower beds, vegetable plots, a polytunnel, a wildlife pond and a classroom where volunteers share a tea break, either inside or outside depending on the weather. Between us, we also do maintenance, carpentry and Facebook updates. Regular topics for conversation range from what in the garden has been successful, future planting plans, possible new projects – as well as what is going on in the town. The joy of a community garden like this one is the lively company which makes even weeding fun.

Drop in and meet us.
