Our family

The Vauxhall City Farm family goes beyond our staff and volunteers. Become a Friend of the Farm or meet some of the local companies and community organisations that help shape us as a charity.

Spinners

Our spinners are a group of local textile artists and craftsmen with an interest in natural dyes and fibres and their application to contemporary textiles.

The spinners cultivate vegetables and plants in various community garden around London that they can use to extract dyes and produce handmade yarns for weaving, embroidery and knitting.

We grow a selection of dye plants for display at the farm. The spinners attend as many of our family learning sessions over half terms and during the holidays as they can and sell their products (scarf, gloves, ornaments and much more) at our annual Christmas event.

If you’d like to find out more about the spinners or wool workshops please, get in touch!

 

Sponsors

As well as individual donations we rely on many charitable trusts and corporate partners to help support our work. Here’s just a few of the organisations we’d like to thank for everything they’ve done for the farm.
