Frequently asked questions

Do the work sessions still run in bad weather?

Not usually – gardening isn’t fun in a howling gale or driving rain, and we don’t want to make people ill!

How accessible is the garden for people with mobility difficulties?

There is quite a steep (but short) gradient from the gate down into the garden.  Otherwise the site is flat.  In dry weather a mobility scooter can drive into the garden fairly easily but this is more challenging when the ground is wet or muddy.  We aim to create better access paths as soon as funding allows.

Is there a toilet?

Unfortunately not at the current time but we are aiming to install a compost toilet (fully accessible).  We have already obtained planning permission for this from Rother District Council but still need funding to cover the purchase and installation.

In the meantime we have an arrangement with Rye Sports Centre to use their toilets.  For details click Need the toilet.
