Green-fingered community members have the opportunity to grow edible plants with medicinal properties at a Hainault garden in aid of refugees.
Ecotherapy project Forest Farm Peace Gardens (FFPG), in Hazelbrouck Gardens, is holding a seven-hour planting session on Saturday, June 9 from 10am to 5pm.
Guests will plant edible perennial herbs, shrubs and trees in a section of the garden and lunch of soup and bread will be provided.
In partnership with charity Herbalists Without Borders, some of the plants will be used to make medicines to send to refugee camps in northern Europe.
Founded in 2014, FFPG works to support people facing mental health issues - including adults with learning disabilities, refugees and asylum seekers - with outdoor nature based activities.
The project is funded by Grow Wild, an initiative by the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew.
