East Hull Community Farm began back in 1992 as a charity aiming to bring people in the city into contact with practical farm issues. The farm was set up and run by local people on a voluntary non profit making basis. The farm highlights environmental issues and contributes to a better understanding of activities, such as organic gardening and recycling. The farm also has a role in education too, promoting good animal husbandry, crop cultivation and land management. The Community Farm is an educational resource. It is next door to Andrew Marvel School and children from Hull and East Yorkshire use it to help them learn about the countryside. We cover many agricultural issues in the National Curriculum and provide valuable work experience.
