Forest Farm Peace Garden is a Social and Horticultural Therapy (SHT) project on a permaculture site in Hainault, East London. We work with 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, 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 our clients 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 November, we are open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11am to 4pm. From February to April we are open from 11am to 1 pm only. We also open on occasional Sundays for open days, workshops and events.
The garden will be closed from 14th December 2016 to 15th February. We will re-open for half days only from 11am to 1 pm only until April.
We are now recruiting Ecotherapy Worker. For more info please visit our Vacancies page.
