Young Volunteers – closed to new volunteers


Our Young Volunteers program is currently oversubscribed so we’re sorry to say that we are closed to new young volunteers from May 2019 onwards.

It’s fantastic that so many young people aged 12-17 are keen to get involved with the running of the farm and we hope to reopen the opportunity after a review period.

We won’t be operating a waiting list but we will send out an email if and when we are able to welcome new volunteers. You can sign up to the farm youth volunteering mailing list here


Work Experience

We reopened our work experience program for 14-20yr olds in 2019 as part of the Mayor of London’s ‘Young London Inspired’ program for volunteering and youth social action projects. We have already offered places to 14 young people between Oct 2019 and July 2020 so we are no longer open to applications for this academic year.

We are open to applications and referrals for placements in the next academic year between September 2020 to July 2021. These will be allocated through a referral and application process. Please contact Alex Collings, Youth Programme Manager ( for more information.
