Informative & inspirational events, talks, courses & workshops

The Garden House is a place of energy and inspiration that encourages sustainable living, and where people can learn about horticulture, share information and be creative!

Covid-19 update: Brighton & Hove are currently under Lockdown restrictions, sad news for us all.  However, we are feeling positive about 2021 and are planning some exciting new talks and courses – at the moment via Zoom, though looking ahead, others hopefully, will be in the Garden House garden.  Our intention is to continue to be cautious and to see how it all goes over the next weeks and months.  

Do follow us on Instagram @Gardenhouse – each day we’re posting an image from the garden to lift your spirits.
