What you’ll be doing

Gardening is an easy and fun way to improve your health, learn interesting skills and meet new people. Our friendly and relaxed groups meet two times a week and it doesn’t matter if you’re experienced or new to gardening. We run a range of free therapeutic activities to suit the needs of our attendees. Activities include maintaining the Bromley by Bow Centre’s beautiful park and roof garden, growing and harvesting vegetables, arranging flowers for display in our café and much more.

Get in touch to find out when our next induction session for new gardeners is.
