A new “therapeutic” gardening workshop for Southwark residents launched at Surrey Docks Farm this week.
The free workshop is running every Wednesday from 10.30-12.30, starting this week (May 26). Plans include growing vegetables and herbs, and learning about the properties of different plants, according to Amy Hodgkinson, who is running the workshop for Southwark Wellbeing Hub. The workshop is open to people with any level of gardening experience.
Spaces are limited to just four people at the moment because of Covid-19 concerns, but with restrictions due to lift in just under a month, numbers should rise.
“I am operating a waiting list, so please do get in touch if you’d like to take part,” Amy said. “We’re very grateful to Surrey Docks Farm for opening up the space within the farm for us,” she added.
