JOIN THE 500 CLUB

Moulsecoomb Forest Garden Project is a small award winning charity that packs a big punch in East Brighton.

Our community gardens are a melting pot of people and our work targets some of the cities most troubled youngsters. We've been going nearly 20 years and have got an impressive track record. Now we are beginning to be able to offer pupils the chance to get qualifications, our work has become even more important. 

So we are asking if you can help make us as sustainable as the fruit and vegetables we grow.

We currently raise £130 a month through our Friends of the Forest Garden fund where people make monthly standing orders. We would love to get this to £500 before Christmas.

So could you afford £2 or more a month and save us from endless grant applications so we can get on with the job that we are good at.


£2 a month will buy all our broad bean seeds for the year 
£5 a month will buy us a new wheelbarrow and fork
£10 a month will buy us all our seed potatoes for the year

We aren't a big charity. None of us are on a big wage. We don't have an office. Our overheads are low. Our advertising budget is zero. We rely on goodwill and freebies and some fantastic volunteers to get by. That's not to say we aren't professional!

We do charge schools for our services and self-generate 35% of our funds.

If you become a Friend not only will you get that warm feeling of making a big difference, but you will be the first to find out details of our events and get an invite to our Christmas party where it always snows!
