The Young Farmers Project is an opportunity for young people ages 11-14 from the local area to explore farming and wellbeing. Sessions will include farming jobs, cooking and self-reflection and are about giving children the time and space to reflect, renew and determine a new path for themselves. We do this by creating an environment where they feel respected, and are given opportunities to display their talents and show responsibility.Building confidence and self-esteem for children 11-14 year old.

Oasis Farm Waterloo works in partnership with Jamie’s Farm. Jamie’s Farm exists to transform the lives of vulnerable children in challenging urban schools by providing a unique combination of ‘farming, family and therapy’ through a short-stay residential and follow-up programmes. The charity aims to re-engage children with educational life, enabling them to fulfil their potential both in their school and community, and has worked with over 2,000 vulnerable young people primarily from disadvantaged communities of London.

The club will run for 12 sessions starting June 20th 2018. We’ll be  planting, cooking, mucking-out, making and more.

LOAM Popup Restaurant

The Loam family is delighted to invite you to a celebratory feast and an immersive evening to mark the beauty and bounty of the autumn season. Our feasts are designed for the veg-inclined with a flavoursome, ingredient-led menu by guest chef Jack Williams (Westerns Laundry, ex-Primeur).

Loam means ‘fertile soil’ and our October dining experience will be held close to the earth, on the beautiful Oasis Farm Waterloo, in the centre of the big city, with our long banquet tables laid in a beautiful architecturally-designed barn on site.

Discover – Start the evening with a beautifully crafted cocktail while you explore the farm and try your hand at pickle-making (hosted by London ferment producer Tickle Pickle) using surplus farm produce.

One Woman Show by Michelle Zahner ‘A Modern Guide to Heroism and Sidekickery’

Before she disappears off to Australia, Michelle is previewing her very first solo show in London, one night only, in a barn in Waterloo. There’ll be warm drinks, there’ll be a bar, bring your own blanket and get ready for a story…

Everyone knows how superhero stories work.

Save day, rescue damsel, witty one-liner, post-credits scene. But Michelle Zahner doesn’t want to do that. She wants to ask the real questions: Why are there never pockets in lycra costumes? How do heroes make rent? What if there’s no villain? And why don’t we have a word for a male damsel?

For this mission, she’s combining storytelling, poetry, comedy and physical theatre. With an accidental superhero, a lost journalist and a girl who doesn’t need saving she explores what we expect from heroes, and what might happen if we get it.

This event is raising money for Oasis Farm Waterloo, they’re pretty cool people, check them out here: http://oasisfarmwaterloo.org/

Tix £5 pre-sale (+ 77p fee), £7 on the door.
