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!
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.
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.
Volunteers help us maintain the farm. If you are interested in helping us maintain the farm and you are handy with a drill and a paint brush, please sign up here.
Youths between the ages of 13 to 18 are eligible to volunteer and help out on the farm. We have one session per week every Sunday. If you are interested in getting a child involved please sign them up below.
Our 'Families Go Wild' programme is funded by Reaching Communities - The Big Lottery. Families are encouraged to get involved in gardening, animal care, healthy cooking, general maintenance, and other related activities at the farm. Sessions run every Saturday from 11am – 1pm.
Experience hands on work at Spitalfields City Farm. Develop your skills in animal care, horticulture, office duties, maintenance and more. 1 or 2 weeks, Monday to Friday. Limited availability.
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.
Volunteers also help us with other activities including general maintenance tasks, administration and IT support. Keep an eye out for these opportunities here.
