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