About us

Rye Community Garden is a fun local opportunity that anyone from the local community can get involved in as a volunteer. We run sessions on alternate Saturdays and Mondays growing vegetables and doing other gardening activities – if you want to get involved or know someone that might, we’d love to hear from you!

A little about us…

The garden is an unregistered charity run by a management committee.

Committee members:

Nigel Jennings (Chair)

Katharine Manning (Vice Chair)

Pip al-Khafaji (Secretary)

Dominic Manning (Treasurer)

Susan Wilson

Rosemary Boucherat

Jo Morphy

Stephen Clift

Margaret Ivatts (Co-opted)


Rye Community Garden has also recently appointed a Garden Coordinator Anna Pole, as of April 2019, who will be running the weekly sessions and helping to recruit new volunteers to the project.


The work in the garden wouldn’t be made possibly without the help of our regular volunteers – who help to dig, water and harvest all of our locally produced fruit and veg!
