Interested in applying to have a plot at Stanmer Organics?

Our plot application process runs on a rolling programme with quarterly deadlines throughout the year.  Our next deadline is 28th February 2019

We currently have 3 plots available to rent. Two of which are good horticultural plots and would suit any growing project, one of which is a small plot which would suit either a growing project or arts and crafts based project. If you have an idea for a community group or small business that fits in with the aims and ethos of Stanmer Organics we would like to hear from you.

Please contact our Coordinator, Catherine Mitchell, at for an application form or for further information.
