Nature and Us
The Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park are delivering 'Nature and Us', a community cohesion project funded by Tower Hamlets Council. It will be delivered in two focus areas: (1) Aldgate East, Whitechapel and Shadwell; and (2) Mile End and Stepney. 

'Nature and Us' aims to bring the local community together through nature; creating green spaces for people to enjoy, developing people's skills in local nature and delivering fun nature-based activities. The project is FREE and open to all who live, work or study in any of the areas listed above, whether you want to participate as a volunteer, an individual, a family, a group organisation, a business or a school. 

We run a range of events, such a bulb planting, minibeast hunts, natural art and crafts, as well as 6 week courses to improve your nature based skills. For further information, please look at the following:
