What We Do

Our mission is to use the setting of an urban farm to provide educational, recreational and therapeutic activities.

Vauxhall City Farm is the most centrally located farm in London. We are free to access and open Tuesday-Sunday 10.30am – 4pm. We specialise in educational, recreational and therapeutic services and activities ranging from school trips, workshops, gardening projects and birthday parties to riding lessons.

Our BHS, ABRS and RDA approved riding school offers schools, groups and individuals the opportunity to ride in a unique setting in Central London.

We registered as a charity in 1977 and since then we have been striving to provide for our local community and going from strength to strength. As a charity, we rely on your kind donation so don’t forget to pop some pennies in our donation box when you visit.

Our vision is a city where people from all communities are empowered to experience nature to enhance their health, well-being and life chances.

Our mission, therefore, is to use the setting of an urban farm to provide educational, recreational and therapeutic activities that:

  • Support disadvantaged and disabled people to boost their confidence and aspirations
  • Promote emotional, mental, social and physical well-being
  • Develop environmental awareness and action
  • Strengthen community cohesion
  • Create enjoyment for members of the public.

Respect: We value and nurture the contribution of all those we work with, from our farm animals and the environment, to our staff, volunteers, partners and beneficiaries.

Collaboration: We believe consultation, co-production, partnership and teamwork are essential ingredients for sustainable change.

Transformation: We strive to inspire change that will achieve powerful social, environmental and well-being outcomes for communities and people.

Creativity: We take an innovative and resourceful approach to our work which means we are always learning and pushing ourselves to do better.

Inclusivity: We value diversity in everything we do and work hard to ensure different viewpoints are given an equal voice through our projects.

Professionalism: We are a responsible and efficient organisation, with a working culture rooted in sound management, business practice and governance.
