Geographical remit:

We are a brand new charity and our aim is to set up a city farm and community garden in Exeter.

We want to provide a thriving community hub, a place of recreation, education and therapy for the local community. 

We want to give local people the opportunity to learn about animals, food, nature and the environment and to create a place where people of all ages and backgrounds can come together, learn and thrive. 

We want to provide a wide range of services, facilities, workshops, activities and events for the whole community, from children, families, young people and schools to adults, older people and those with learning difficulties & disabilities or physical disabilities.


What will we offer?


  • An enjoyable and fun place to visit, open to the public.
