Founded in 1996, the Whitehawk Community Food Project is a well-known community allotment focusing on growing wholesome high-quality food all year round, utilising organic, permaculture and biodynamic principles and techniques.
Through regular drop-in volunteer days, workshops, courses and visits they provide opportunities for people to learn practical subsistence food-growing and land skills. Produce is given to their local community food banks and their volunteer gardeners.
Whitehawk Community Food Project received £1,000 from the East Brighton Trust Fund to cover running costs for a year including for tools, equipment and other vital supplies, furthering the efforts of a welcoming, supportive, beautiful green space to the community members of Whitehawk, which has helped to improve mental and physical wellbeing.
