Eden Walk & Talk Lunch Club
- Every Thursday at the Eden Project
- Health and wellbeing benefits
- A social prescribing programme
The Eden Lunch Club provides an opportunity for local people over 65 who live alone to get together once a week to walk, talk and share food. It's one of our social prescribing programmes.
This activity is part of:
Run by friendly, supportive volunteers and trained walk leaders, the Lunch Club provides a safe environment where members undertake regular exercise, socialise and share lunch together at Eden.
'Coming to Eden is the highlight of my week. It boosts me to get out of the house and see others. I always come away feeling happy and relaxed.'
Many of our members have been part of the club for over a year now. We asked them about how the programme had impacted their life, and a 94% said their outlook had changed and they felt happier.

About social prescribing at the Eden Project
At the Eden Project we believe in the power of connecting people with each other and their environment – the power of people collectively doing things to improve their lives and the lives of others around them.
The Eden Lunch Club is part of Nature’s Way, a social prescribing programme that provides opportunities for people to connect and support each other in order to improve their health and wellbeing.
This programme is supported by the Pears Foundation and the Woodford Charitable Fund.
