Our Story

Help make sure we’re here for our 50th Birthday

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.

Before the pandemic we were feeling pretty positive and plans were underway for our 50th Birthday (next year!) We desperately want to make our 50th milestone but need more funding in order to do so. We are a charity, reliant on fundraising and income from programmes. We are facing a huge deficit in our budget this year and the future of the farm is at risk. If you can support us and help us make it to the celebration, please donate – of course in the spirit of our founders when we do, our doors will be wide open and we will welcome you all.
