Gardening for Wellbeing

Surrey Docks Farm delivers weekly ‘Gardening for Wellbeing’ sessions in partnership with Southwark Wellbeing Hub.


What to expect?

During our sessions we spend most of our time in the Farm’s River Garden and Dye Garden – both situated right by the Thames Path. After having a stroll around the space to see what’s been happening in the Garden since the last session, we have a look at what jobs we could do that morning and get stuck in! We grow a range of plants including fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers, and welcome anyone interested in gardening from beginners to experts!

We are often very lucky with the weather in our sessions, but on the more damp days there is still plenty to do – we spend any colder, wetter mornings indoors, where we often sort seeds we have saved, sow new seeds or prick out/pot on our young plants.

We end our mornings with chats over tea and biscuits, and will often harvest something for people to take home if they wish!


How to get involved?

We welcome participants who have been referred to us via the Southwark Wellbeing Hub. They work across the borough to help anyone living in Southwark who is worried about their mental health and mental wellbeing. For information relating to referrals or to register your interest in joining, please call Southwark Wellbeing Hub on 020 3751 9684 or get in touch with the Workshop Coordinator by email:
