Physical tasks encourage motivation, boost staff morale and give a huge sense of achievement. Participants also get to burn calories and enhance wellbeing, in knowledge that they’re contributing to a unique community resource.

‘Thoroughly enjoyable day despite the weather, can’t wait to come back with my kids during the holidays’

Join our many partner organisations who provide people and funds to allow us to keep the Farm doors open for free for the local community. We have lots of exciting and worthwhile projects to get stuck into; take a look at some past achievements:

“Enough guidance to be able to do something useful. Enough freedom to make it interesting. Very well organised, thank you!”

“Working in a team to complete the task set was great fun. Fantastic day, great city farm and loved getting out of the office!”


We focus on urgent, seasonal tasks and projects. For information about current available projects, contact

Because we appreciate the time and enthusiasm that your staff and colleagues bring, we keep our costs down to the minimum necessary for vital staff supervision, administration and overheads, health and safety requirements and any materials needed for the project you choose.

Catering can be arranged for your day.


To book, or for further information about available projects, please contact Clare Hawkins:


We are currently trying to improve the accessibility of the farm to wheelchairs and pushchairs and expand our composting so we can process all of the food waste from our cafe and farm shop. If you would like to contribute to either of these, please contact or donate using the green button at the top right of our website.
