The Greenhouse at Emmaus is our botanical wonderland – a garden shop with a difference found in the conservatory at the back of the Secondhand Superstore.
Here you’ll find a vast selection of indoor and outdoor plants as well as all manner of gardening treasures donated by our supporters - plant pots, gardening books, tools, furniture, wellies, vases, gnomes and other plant-themed bric-a-brac as well as a huge selection of faux flowers – all at bargain prices. Many of the plants are grown lovingly onsite in our polytunnel.
The Greenhouse regularly hosts botanical-themed craft workshops – where members of the public pay a reduced price to learn how to make things such as terrariums and macramé plant hangers or how to draw botanical illustration - with all proceeds going to support our community. Head to the Emmaus Brighton facebook page for more details.
As well as our garden shop and polytunnel, the Greenhouse project also boasts a community allotment and a popular seed swap drawer, where members of the public can place unwanted seeds and swap them with others for free.
Donations of all good quality gardening items and plants are welcome and collection is available for larger items.
