Forest Farm Peace Garden is a community garden in Hainault, East London, open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11am to 4pm, and occasional Sundays for open days, workshops and events. Information about how to find us here.
The Garden works with a broad cross-section of the local community to promote mental and physical health, social inclusion, intercultural awareness, and environmental sustainability. There are many ongoing projects in the Garden- growing organic vegetables, caring for fruit and berry trees, working with our beehives, tending the herb garden and organising workshops and events that welcome and share skills with the community. We are a volunteer led organisation, and aim to provide our volunteers with useful skills, positive experiences and a friendly community- please get in touch to find out how you can get involved.
We aim for all of our activities to have a benefit for both people and the environment. This means that, not only are we committed to organic gardening and other ecologically sound practices, but aim to contribute to sustainable local food production, to the physical and mental health of the community, and to the promotion of a diverse, tolerant and equitable society.
