Stanmer Organics since 1995

Breathing Space is approximately1/3 acre and created by Lindy Brook Tweed in 2000. It’s part of the Stanmer Organics group which was formed in 1995 when they took on the lease for the 17.5 acres. This part of the park was originally the tree and shrub nursery for the council.

Creating Biodiverse Habitats

Breathing Space is a semi wild site and planted to support as much biodiversity as possible encompassing many species of wild flowers and native trees. There is a wild life pond, paths to follow and sitting spaces. Various habitats have been created to enhance and encourage flora and fauna.

The Essence of Connecting With Nature

In the centre is a large living willow dome which provides space for workshops and gatherings of a spiritual/ earth based nature. The whole site intends to provide a peaceful place to reflect, meditate and to feel connected to nature.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are very welcome to help to care for the site as its an ongoing project. We meet every Wednesday 11 – 3 pm

What Can I Gain As a Volunteer?

If you enjoy being outside in a peaceful place ( we over look the Great Wood just beyond the horses field ) and would like to support wild life, learn about wild flowers and perhaps work in our Bee & Butterfly garden then please contact Lindy >

Breathing Space can be hired for workshops or gatherings and / or you’d like to be put on our mailing list for availability or information about our activities please email Alistair >

We’d love to hear from you.

Comments about this page

  • I consider Breathing Space to be a real treasure in my life. I so appreciate the natural lie of the land carefully and unobtrusively managed to allow a safe home for birds and wildlife.
    The paths meander delightfully around the beautiful living willow and hickory Bower where l to sit and meet with my friends. Plus other smaller enclosures and arbours, l love it all.
