Other details

Geographical remit: 


We are an inner City Farm based within a stone’s throw from the City of London and offer volunteering opportunities to our local community of Tower Hamlets, to work with animals, learn about and help grow in our garden and where our food comes from. We are one of only two green spaces that are available for community use in the area of Spitalfields and as such are much used. We encourage our community to use our services through a variety of ways such as volunteering and to visit us is FREE. We are open 6 days a week and only close over the Xmas and New Year period. We work with people who have poor mental and physical health, drug and alcohol misuse and homelessness, by accessing the farm this increases self confidence and encourages people to get out and about and socialise.
