Gardening for Wellbeing

Surrey Docks Farm is delighted to launch a new partnership with Southwark Wellbeing Hub to run weekly ‘Gardening for Wellbeing’ sessions.

These sessions will be based around the three main principles of horticultural therapy: nature, meaningful activity and social interaction. We will explore a wide range of plants including vegetables, help to look after the Dye garden and River Garden on the Thames Path, and enjoy the thriving Wildlife Garden.

The first sessions will be a chance to get familiar with the Farm and explore what participants are interested in doing in future sessions. We will have a sensory table of herbs, flowers and vegetables, and enjoy a cuppa.

All referrals will be taken through 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 please call Southwark Wellbeing Hub on 020 3751 9684 or get in touch with Amy Hodgkison on amy-hodgkinson@together-uk.org.

This project is kindly funded by the City Bridge Trust as part of our ‘Putting Down Roots in Rotherhithe’ project.
