Our Story

We have a rich history, kickstarted by Ed Berman who mobilised a community to improve its neighbourhood and create imaginative spaces for children to play and explore. Inter-Action steered by Ed, found farm buildings and stables and had a radical idea, to create a “City Farm”. This was the start of not only our own incredible history but of the whole City Farm movement. Today, Kentish Town City Farm is a hub, a place where everyone can get their hands dirty, care for real life animals, share their skills or learn new ones. Others come for the tranquillity, a haven for wildlife and sanctuary from the busy city.

Throughout the last fifty years we have relied on your support to make the farm the special place it is today. We hope you can continue to support us and make our 50th Birthday celebration another successful milestone in the farm’s history.
