Volunteering

 

Spitalfields City Farm was originally set up by volunteers in 1978 and we still rely on volunteers today to help maintain the farm and gardens, look after the animals and assist in delivering projects.

In short, without volunteers there would be no farm. If you want to help out, here is how you can get involved:

Farmyard: We currently have a waiting list for Farmyard (over 18) volunteers - applications already recieved are being processed and we will arrange an interview when there is availability  Please contact Michelle if you have any questions.
