There are many costs involved in running an urban farm. Our wishlist contains everyday items ranging from washing up liquid to one-off purchases. We’re extremely grateful for any contribution you can make.
If you would like to make a general donation, please visit our JustGiving page. Donations enable us to run educational activities for children, offer voluntary experiences, maintain the farm, and take proper care of the animals.

|Improve Drainage||£2,512|| As part of managing our farmyard animals, we are regularly pressure wash the area where they are kept. This creates a wash off that needs to be guided away. At present, we have a temporary soak-away arrangement, however, this is not suitable long-term. We need to employ a builder to connect our drainage channel to a sewage line (£516) and install a new drainage channel (£1,996) to reduce the risks of infection. Total: £2,512
Additional quotes pending.
|Develop Outdoor Kitchen||£2,768||To make our kitchen a more accessible and safer working environment, we need to enclose the sides of the kitchen and create a single entrance with a ramp and disinfectant mat. Once our barn is built, we will move our kitchen equipment into the barn, and use this space as a growing space and potting shed for growing activities.
