St Peters Community Wellbeing Project

St Peters Community Wellbeing Projects in Bethnal Green, London works to support local elderly and/or vulnerable BAME women through participation in community gardening activities.

The women who benefit from the project face cultural, financial and language barriers to accessing mainstream services, are suffering from physical and mental health problems or are vulnerable to poor mental health through isolation and loneliness.

Through the community gardening project these women have the opportunity to develop gardening skills, build friendships and make connections with the local community as well as experiencing the health benefits of being outside and gardening.

They applied for a National Garden Scheme Community Garden Grant in 2023 to make improvements to the gardening space including building strong climbing frames to withstand the weight of crops commonly grown in Bangladesh such as bottle gourd and Asian pumpkin.
