Volunteering at the Farm
We have a fantastic group of adult volunteers who help keep the farm a vibrant grassroots organisation. Whether you have time to help with only one event or want to get involved on a weekly basis there is plenty to get stuck into.
Adult volunteers work on all sorts of projects that include: the animals, gardens, office skills, cake baking, event planning, helping out on event days and many more.
We particularly welcome local artists and volunteers to run creative activities for children at fundraising events or during school holidays.
Please note that any adult wishing to work around children will be subject to a DBS check before starting.
Call 020 7916 5421 or drop by the farm to find out about all our volunteer opportunities.

The Farm Board of Trustees
Trustees are volunteers who have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do. They lead the charity and decide how it is run – so being a trustee means making decisions that will impact on people’s lives.
Trustees use their skills and experience to support the Farm, helping it achieve its aims. As a trustee you may benefit from learning new skills, networking and from the satisfaction that comes from supporting a local charity.

“Volunteering at Kentish Town City Farm was a completely joyful experience where I learned something new everyday and made many dear friends. It seemed a bit selfish at times to be having so much fun! So I was both surprised and honoured to receive the exceptional volunteer award from Camden. I’m delighted that others felt my work was helpful and it inspires me to keep volunteering.”
Rachel Schwartz, Farm Trustee received the Exceptional Volunteer Award, Camden Volunteer Centre Awards, Nov 2016.
