Who will I help?

Escape from your desk and immerse yourself in the lush nature of one of the only two remaining Ancient Monuments in the borough of Newham, an abandoned site turned into a community garden.

Abbey Gardens is an open-access harvest garden in Stratford that welcomes members of the community to join them in helping to maintain the garden. The garden has not only helped to build a stronger sense of community but has provided locals with an appreciation for nature and locally grown food.

All leftover produce grown is given to the community and displayed on the Honesty Stall.

How will I help?

Volunteer at Abbey Gardens to get outdoors and learn new gardening skills in a warm and friendly environment.

You may find yourself helping out with:

• Pruning, weeding and planting
• Watering plants
• Organising the greenhouse and clearing the shed.

You will be volunteering alongside the garden club leader and members of the local community who enjoy pottering around the garden.

    Great project and really enjoyed my time there.

    Abbey Gardens is looked after beautifully by Alison and the other volunteers but there is always work to do, which we were really happy to get stuck in to doing.

    Hopefully we helped Alison yesterday and she was pleased. Alison was a lovely lady too.

    I would say for next time we definitely would bring a thermos flask for tea as that would have been fab but that’s more because our team love a cuppa.
