Garden for Wellbeing

 

Supported by

Are you 55 or over and interested in:

  • Improving your health and wellbeing whilst enjoying the outdoors?
  • Getting gentle exercise through gardening & food growing?
  • Meeting new people, making new friends and chatting over a cup of tea?
  • Learning a new skill, or re-discovering old ones?

 

If yes, why not join our FREE weekly gardening sessions?

All sessions are run in a safe environment by a qualified Therapeutic Garden Practitioner. No prior knowledge of gardening or food growing is necessary. All plants and tools are provided as part of the project.

All those visiting us will have to reach the Walled Garden by foot, via the park’s public pathways, as there is no vehicular access and no car park in Park Hill Park. The nearest public parking is in Stanhope Road, where there is a direct pedestrian entrance into the park.

The FREE ‘Gardening for Wellbeing’ sessions in Park Hill Park are part of the NHS / One Croydon social prescription programme. You can join the sessions via a GP referral or you can self-refer.

For more information on the programme, facilities or to confirm your attendance please email our project leader Catherine at gardeningforwellbeing@gmail.com.
