Come along to our allotment photography exhibition - Grown in Brighton.


Grown in Brighton is a photographic project done throughout 2018, from the snow and hard ground of winter, through a burning bright summer to the bonfire colours of autumn.

The allotment sits on the steep Whitehawk Hill Road. It’s a community garden run by the Brighton Unemployed Centre Families Project, a local charity that supports those living on low incomes. People can go to the allotment and work together to grow and share good food.

In a time of austerity, places like this are a life-line and show that given opportunity, work and care, wonderful things can grow in the least likely places.

The opening of the exhibition will take place on Friday 10th May at 12 noon.
The exhibition will run from 10th May - 24th May, Tues- Fri 1pm-2pm.

As part of National Walking Month and the Health Walks Programme, there will also be a health walk taking place on Friday 10th May at 10.30am meeting at the corner of Whitehawk Hill Road and Donald Hall Road. There then be a guided tour of our organic community allotment at Walpole Road. Find out about growing seasonal fruit and veg with panoramic views of Brighton. The walk will then culminate at the opening of our allotment photography exhibition at BUCFP, 6 Tilbury Place, BN2 0GY.
