London City Farms

London’s 12 City Farms are educational green spaces – with livestock and gardens – that connect city people with farming, food production, and the natural environment. Together we serve more than half a million Londoners every year.

Each Farm represents the character of its local community and offers services suited to their needs. We provide a unique resource for London’s urban population to experience seasonal farming activities firsthand.

The Farms are community hubs that bring people of all backgrounds and ages together in shared experiences. We are spaces to visit, volunteer, learn, take part and have fun.

We are all charities, and all free to visit.

You can support all 12 City Farms with a donation to the
“Celebrate London’s City Farms” campaign
