Lambeth Palace Gardening Project now up and running.

April 27, 2018

The pilot of the Lambeth Garden project, solely funded by LiveTwice, is now up and running and working with refugees from the local community.  The refugees work alongside the gardeners at Lambeth Palace and other volunteers learning a new skill which may hopefully lead to employment and also improving their English.

Jess, the coordinator of this project, told us that in the first week of the project one of the refugees told her that he felt peaceful for the first time in a very long time just by being among the plants. It’s wonderful to offer such therapeutic benefit in the heart of a huge city to people who have been through so much.
