The Gardening Project is a weekly therapeutic gardening group for adults offered by Hackney City Farm and Gaia Therapy Project.
A warm and welcoming environment, this group is for people who are experiencing challenges in their lives, particularly for individuals who have been feeling vulnerable and isolated during the Covid pandemic.
Based outdoors, in Hackney City Farm’s peaceful community garden, there will be opportunity to get involved in gardening, woodwork, conservation and beekeeping. The activities are intended to cultivate our connection to the natural world and appreciation of the community we live in. There will be space to share experiences together, if people wish to, though this will never be an expectation or obligation.
