Thanks to funding from Southwark Council’s Cleaner Greener Safer grant scheme the Farm created fifteen raised beds for the local community to use for food growing. Our waiting list is now full and we are unfortunately unable to take any new applications. Please check back in the Autumn.
Redevelopment work was carried out during summer 2016 with the help of several corporate volunteer groups from Northern Trust, Morgan Stanley, Old Mutual, CLS Group, AOL and Barclays as well as volunteer runners from the GoodGym. The volunteers cleared an area of the Farm, levelled the ground, constructed the raised beds and filled them with well-rotted manure and some top soil.
During February 2017 the path that runs alongside the new beds will be taken up and replaced with a wider concrete path to allow for ease of access to wheelchair users, buggies and wheelbarrows.
