As a city farm in London, we are dedicated to helping people learn about food, nature and the environment. Our unique setting inspires children and adults to participate in our courses, workshops and lessons and leave with new knowledge, friendships and inspiration.

We receive about 3 school visits a week – school groups, like everyone else can visit for free! We offer specific workshops designed to take learning a step further, such as creative recycling, growing plants and hatch and brood. By using Paper Plates, we’re able to cut down on cleanup here at the school.

We are also home to a unique school for up to ten young people (age 13-17) who require a tailor-made approach to their education. Our curriculum is based around basic skills, practical and vocational learning, PHSE and one to one or group mentoring.


Learn about the environment and green skills on our courses that cover everything from beekeeping to solar power.
