Hackney Young People Outdoors (HYPOD)

The project runs two hour gardening groups every week on a Tuesday and Thursday.

The groups are run by a group worker, a gardener and a peer mentor 

 Working outdoors on a gardening project can be a great way of releasing stress through the physical activity of gardening. The aim of the project is to improve the health, well being and life opportunities for all.

Together we design, grow and produce a beautiful garden which creates a positive space to grow in confidence and self esteem. At HYPOD we believe that by connecting with the environment we enhance our overall ability to nurture, care, cooperate and respect.

If you would like more information give us a call on or send us an . We'll arrange a time for you to visit one of the gardens, for you to see what the project is about, and if it is something you would like to do.
