The Beautiful Shed Project

Spitalfields City Farm is excited to announce our Beautiful Shed Project.

Inspired by the work of Ben Law and lead by Adrian Leaman we will be building a Roundwood 3 Cruck frame timber shed which will be used to house our shop. The 3 Cruck frames will be built on a 4 day intensive course at Adrian’s yard in Gloucestershire for those people keen to learn new skills in roundwood timber framing. The frame will then be transported to the Farm where it will be erected in the last 2 weeks of September.

To book on the course please go to:

There will be further opportunities for volunteers to be involved with the full build at the Farm in September.

Raise the Roof

The stables are at the heart of the farmyard and house rare breed and rescue animals including; donkeys, ponies, sheep, goats, & cows at night, 365 days a year.  Standing for over 30 years it has had numerous re-paints, parts added and removed, and been a safe home for many residents, some even calling it their place of birth! 
"The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining." John F. Kennedy
Now starting to show its age, the stable roof is in dire need of replacement before next winter.
Your donations will help us Go Green! We are aspiring to replace the roof with sustainable materials and power the lighting in an environmentally friendly way to last long into the future!
Keeping our residents housed safely means we can continue to  give many Londoners the chance to meet an iconic farm species on their door step.
Our IndieGoGo campaign got the ball rolling with supporters raising £1000!

Zero Emissions Network

Spitalfields Farm has joined a new campaign for clean air - The Zero Emissions Network (ZEN) - a joint initiative between the London boroughs of Islington, Hackney and Tower Hamlets that helps businesses operate cheaper, cleaner and greener. 

Being so central, the Borough of Tower Hamlets is one of the poorest for air quaility in London so all the more need for projects like Spitalfields Farm to inspire others in making a free commitment to become a Cleaner Air Business.
