Improving Lives Through Farming


Stepney City Farm is a three-acre working farm, a unique educational resource, and a rural oasis in the heart of our community in Tower Hamlets. The Farm is free and open to visitors six days a week, providing the opportunity for local urban communities in one of England’s most deprived boroughs to meet farm animals, try out crafts including pottery and woodwork, access affordable local organic standard produce, and connect with nature and food growing. The site features a Café, a weekly Farmer’s market, a Rural Arts Centre, and 78 allotments allocated to local residents and community groups.

Over 5,000 school children take part in curriculum-linked activities on the Farm each year. Young people, including special educational needs and young offender groups, are involved in over 2,000 hours of supported volunteering. Annually, over 500 people attend Open Volunteering green care and animal care sessions; and around 100 people are trained up as regular volunteers. The ‘Animal and Nature Wellbeing’ programme provides therapeutic animal-assisted intervention for those with higher level needs, reducing isolation by connecting people with animals, nature, and each other.
