Oasis Farm Temporary Closure

In line with current Government advice Oasis Farm Waterloo has currently suspended our events programme of family days, volunteer days and one-off events including the upcoming Circus Spectacular on the farm. We’ll be updating this page as we know more and are aiming to get you all some farm time again as soon as it’s safe.

However, we realise that in a time where things are uncertain and we need to be physically distant from each other, this is exactly the time where we need community, where we need to connect with people and find some hope, some chink of light in unsettling times.

So the farm might be pausing activities but Oasis Hub Waterloo is not going away; we think that instead of social distancing we should be practising physical distancing – we’ll be staying in touch via social media, WhatsApp, and soon we’re going to launch some online initiatives offering a range of practical ways in which we can continue to stay in touch, keep healthy, and look after our wellbeing.

August Volunteer Day

Oasis Farm Waterloo needs you! August is a busy time, there’s things to pick, things to plant and ALWAYS things to water! So you’re invited to join the team on August 3rd, from 11am to 3pm.

We are an urban farm and community resource in Waterloo, a hidden gem just moments from the Southbank. Since 2015, we have been transforming a derelict wasteland into a beautiful, thriving space that works to transform children’s lives through farming, family and therapy.

We are looking for some volunteers to help keep our farm animals, flowers and vegetables happy and healthy, and help us carry on doing our amazing work with young people.If you like the outdoors, working with animals, plants or young people we’d love to welcome you to our team!

Drop into one of our monthly Saturday volunteering days, and work up a sweat turning compost, cleaning our buildings and mucking out animals. Lunch provided, no need to book. New & experienced volunteers welcome, 80% chance of piglets.

Summer BBQ on the Farm

Head down to the farm! On the 5th of July we’re throwing open the doors to welcome Summer (we hope) and you for a night of good food and great music. Kicking off at 6.30pm, we’ll have the charcoal burning and be serving up both vegie and meat eater BBQ treats. Hang out on a hay bale in our barn or soak up the Summer* in our garden. We’ll have live music sets from local artists and the bar will be open.

Organised in conjunction with We Are Waterloo for their Food Fortnight. All profits go back into helping run Oasis Farm Waterloo.

*Oasis Farm Waterloo cannot guarantee the presence of Summer

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).

Inspired by our childhood memories of eating at the big family table, together with our passion for sustainable dining, we utilise community-grown produce primarily from London farms to create abundant ingredient-led platters bursting with flavour.

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.

Feast – Enjoy dishes like Westcombe ricotta dumplings with cavolo nero and meringue with spiced quince served family-style in a joyful feasting environment. Our menu is fully vegetarian and we can accommodate vegan and other dietary requirements.

Linger – After the feast, we invite you to connect with friends old and new as we mix some cocktails and a soulful soundtrack late into the evening.

Tickets will include a cocktail upon arrival, pickle making mini-class, four courses and tea or coffee, with wine available to purchase on the evening.

Dress Code: We will be seated inside the barn and there will be heating, however, please bring some warm clothing so you are comfortable exploring the farm and spending some time outdoors.

We can’t wait to see you at our table x

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.
