St Paul’s Woodland Garden is located at the top of Camden Square in the grounds of St Paul’s Church. The project works with a number of groups to combat isolation and support people’s health and wellbeing through food, gardening, conservation and community.
Starting in 2018 we have transformed a neglected space into part food growing part wildlife reserve. We successfully applied for Lottery funding in September 2019. We work with patient groups from St Pancras Psychiatric Hospital, the Traumatic Stress Clinic, The London Irish Centre as well as St Paul’s congregation, The Anchorage student church and the wider community.
Although we are a gardening and conservation project, we have found through our recent experimentation of running different activities and working with different groups, that people love cooking and baking and arts and craft sessions.
