Nature - Heritage - Volunteering - Events

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' brings 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 the areas listed above. 

We have a range of participants and volunteers involved in the project, and we partner with organisations such as schools, community groups and businesses. Events range from bulb planting, minibeast hunts, natural arts and crafts, as well as courses to improve your nature based skills.
