‘Nature and Us’ is a community cohesion project in Tower Hamlets, delivered by the Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park. The project 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. Events range from planting, minibeast hunts, natural crafts, tree walks, bats walks and wildflower courses.

We have a range of participants and volunteers involved in the project, and we partner with organisations such as schools, community groups and businesses. If you would like to enquire about partnering or volunteering with us, or tell us what events/courses you would like to see advertised, please call: 0208 983 1277 or email: michelle.lindson@fothcp.org.
