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 October, we are open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11am to 4pm. From 13th November to 11th December 2015 we will be switching to ‘out of season’ opening times and only open for the morning session of 11am to 1pm. The garden will be closed for a winter break from Wednesday 16th December’15 to January 20th 2016. We also open on occasional Sundays for open days, workshops and events.
