Sustainable Sussex is about people, places,
lifestyle, economy and creativity.

Sustainable Sussex is more than just a community garden project.

We are based on Sompting Estate, working with people who find access to the workplace difficult due to diverse needs and individual difficulties.


From grounds maintenance to chilli jam production – our projects are based at various sites and reflect the diversity of the individuals who take part in them.

“Sustainable Sussex Lemon Drop Chilli Jam is by far the best I have tasted in all my years of searching for chilli jam perfection. That Keith Colin is a [incredible] alchemist I tell you! Just incredible!” Nick Carling


Lemon Drop Chilli Jam is amazing…..Especially nice with cheese or as an accompaniment to curry…..On our third jar and we want lots more…….A real taste bud tingler 😋.” Cath


“This place is simply amazing. Their fruit and veg has that proper taste you just don’t get in main stream supermarkets. Their chillies are beautiful and they have actual flavour. Not like the bland basic red ones you buy in tescos. Plus to know it’s been grown sustainably in the heart of our community is the best thing..” Brontie


What Keith Colin doesn’t know about chilli’s isn’t worth knowing and he is happy to share his knowledge about chilli’s and many other topics whilst enhancing individuals in self awareness and esteem with ease…. Sustainable Sussex you are amazing” Jaq
