    What we do
    We provide an extensive educational programme to schools, work experience opportunities for students and farm & garden related activities for local children and families. This work is supported by the London Borough of Camden.

    In addition, we have a lively core of volunteers who support staff in the day-to-day running of the farm and organise seasonal fundraising events. Young people between 8 -16 years support farm activities through our popular Young Farmers Club.

    The main farm building provides facilities for visiting schools, community groups and children’s activities. In the farm kitchen, children can learn to cook using fresh ingredients from our community gardens. The gardens provide opportunities for neighbourhood & therapeutic horticultural projects and for children to learn about wildlife & growing food.

    We provide amenities to visiting corporate teams and host private events. The indoor and outdoor spaces of the farm are available for hire all year round.
