HELP out AROUND THE FARM!

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. You may be eligible to help out in a number of areas, so we've outlined below how you can easily sign-up!

Education volunteer

Volunteers help us deliver our education programme, both at the farm and in local schools. If you are interested in getting involved please sign up below.


GardenING VOLUNTEER

Volunteers are involved in all aspects of cultivating the vegetable garden and some tasks are more hard work than others. We have space to learn how to grow food and we hold gardening sessions twice a week.

Corporate team days

Located on the edge of the City of London, the farm is an ideal spot for a team building work day. For further information on corporate volunteering please have a look at the corporate challenge page.
