Free Mini Team SessionsVolunteer Help

 

We are currently offering free volunteering opportunities for groups of up to 4 people to help make our services available to local people during the Covid-19 pandemic. We really need your help and may work you pretty hard!  But you’ll also enjoy our friendly farm atmosphere while helping out a much-valued community project … and of course there’s always time to hang out with the animals.

Big Thanks

A great big Thank You to the staff members at Holborn based Octopus – Real Estate who have been coming by in small groups to help us bag up compost and keep the Farm in good repair.

 

Team Days

A great way to support the farm!

 

What We Do

KTCF is a unique charity that helps people connect with animals, nature and the environment. We offer educational, therapeutic and creative opportunities to children, adults with special needs, and anyone who is stressed by city living. See our You Tube video to find out more about the farm and what we do.  It’s produced by the City of London Corporation’s charity City Bridge Trust, who fund our busy school educational programme.

Groups of 5-30 people
If you and your team at work are looking for a team building day with a difference, you’ve found it! Come and develop your professional relationships and skills, whilst supporting a valuable community resource, and while chickens and geese run freely around your feet. All days include special animal encounters, so you get to know the animals themselves as well as the farm.

 

Meeting the donkeysThere’s always time to meet the animals

 

At Kentish Town City Farm, we can offer you a fun-filled day catered to your needs that is both beneficial to you and your colleagues and us at the farm. There is always a variety of interesting tasks for people of all abilities, outdoors or indoors, all guaranteed to give you something to brag about back at the office!

We also offer half-day volunteering, which is mainly based around animal/farm work and gardening.

 

Typical Schedule
A typical day volunteering would look something like this:

10:00 Meet on the yard for an introduction, health and safety brief and tour of our farm.

10:30 Split into small groups and get stuck in. Great support and guidance will be at hand.

12:00 – 13:00 Lunch time: we don’t include lunch, but if you want something arranged then we can introduce you to an excellent local caterer. Alternatively, there are some great cafes locally. If you’re lucky one of our volunteers might have some fresh fruit and vegetables for you to try straight from the gardens.

13:00 Time to get back to work! There is a chance to swap tasks but often people choose to see theirs through to the end, for that feeling of a job well done and completed.

15:00 Tools down and time for some “hands on” time with our animals.  If you’ve never groomed a goat, herded a pig or fed a cow, this is your opportunity. It’s the favourite part of the day for most of our volunteers.

16:00 Time to go home, or if you would prefer to move on as a team we can recommend some great local watering holes.

Half-day volunteering usually runs from 9am to 12pm.

 

Prices:
A full day is £50 per head, with a £600 minimum charge
A half day is £35 per head, with a £350 minimum charge

This fee goes towards covering the cost of running these days, and also contributes to the everyday running of the farm for the benefit of the local community.
