Forest Farm Peace Garden.
Enhancing the health and wellbeing of the local community through forest gardening, food growing, bee-keeping, composting, crafts and more.
FFPG is a community project working to regenerate an abandoned allotment site in Hainault, North East London. The regeneration involves the creation of an abundant community garden, growing a wide range of fruits, vegetables, culinary and medicinal herbs. There are raised beds, forest gardens, orchards, wildflower meadows, wildlife ponds, living structures and conservation areas. There is also a thriving apiary, a functioning wind-turbine, a compost toilet system, a community compost scheme, polytunnels, individual allotments, a bodging site and a classroom/kitchen.
As regeneration work continues so the project is slowly bringing together many opportunities for people to learn and share new skills. We run workshops and classes on a variety of themes and hold open days to promote the work we do, with community cohesion and the creation of a supportive and therapeutic environment underpinning and enhancing the activities of the garden.
