Southsea Green Community Garden

Grow, Plant, Share and Eat Locally

We’re a beloved green-space where we grow local food and flowers. A community garden, transformed from long forgotten wasteland. Portsmouth City council support our social venture in their commitment to local communities.

We want to get more people growing, buying local food and crafts and to share tools, campaigns and resources with others who care about the city we live in. To help make Pompey proud of it's green-spaces.

Our philosophy is to ‘grow your own’, sharing seeds, compost; plants; trees; green space and resources. With the Food Partnership, and green groups, we campaign for sustainability; recycling and reducing waste. And for a happier, healthier environment.

Southsea Sangha

Earthworm Sangha is a monthly meditation group run by and for disabled, neurodiverse and chronically ill people.

We meet monthly, online over Zoom, to practice half an hour of peer-led silent meditation, followed by community sharing. It’s free to attend from your sofa, sick bed or meditation cushion, and there is no expectation to speak in the group or have your camera on, your presence with us is a gift. For those who are newer to practice we will share links to resources such as guided meditation although our main practice is silent.
