Forest Farm Peace Garden is an ecotherapy garden at a permaculture allotment site in Hainault, East London. We provide an Ecotherapy Programme offering social and therapuetic activities for a broad cross-section of supported clients and buddy volunteers 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, beekeeping, tending the herb garden and many 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 our clients and the environment. If you would like to be involved with our Ecotherapy Programme or would like to refer someone with mental health support needs, please get in touch to find out how we can help!
We are open on Wednesday and Friday from 11am to 4pm (from April to November) and 11am to 2 pm from November to April.
We also hold occasional events and workshops at weekends.
