Forest Farm Peace Garden is an organic community garden in Hainault, East London with an ecotherapy programme for supported volunteers. We work 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 trees and berry-bearing shrubs, working with our beehives, tending the herb garden and organising workshops and events that welcome and share skills with the community. Our aim is for all of our activities to have a benefit for both people and the environment. If you would like to be involved with our ecotherapy programme or would like to refer someone to it, please get in touch to find out how we can help!
From April to September, we are open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11am to 4pm; outside of those months the garden may be closed over winter or only open for the morning session of 11am to 1pm so please check with us first before visiting. Currently, as of week commencing 13/04/15, we are open Wednesdays and Fridays for both the morning and afternoon sessions. We also open on occasional Sundays for open days, workshops and events.
