Spitalfields City Farm

Spitalfields City Farm

Spitalfields City Farm is the nearest city farm to the City of London’s square mile. Despite this, we are located in one of the most densely populated wards of Tower Hamlets. We work with a vibrant and multi-cultural community to provide educational opportunities for children and adults alike, to empower people to gain new skills, confidence, to combat social isolation.
The farm is a unique environment for children to learn. We deliver one hour educational workshops, for groups of up to 30 school children. Workshops are adaptable to the age, ability and current learning topics of the group and explore the themes of farming, food, sustainability and nature connection.
