Donate to support Surrey Docks Farm
We urgently need your help to keep Surrey Docks Farm open and accessible for all.
If you’ve visited recently, please consider donating whatever you can to contribute to our rising costs.
Surrey Docks Farm offers free access for thousands of visitors to get outdoors and learn about farming, food production and the natural environment in the centre of London.
We deliver a wide range of community projects that engage local people in animal care, food growing and cooking activities. Projects include school workshops, toddlers groups, youth clubs, training projects for adults with learning disabilities, work experience placements, youth reparation carpentry training, English lessons for asylum seekers, older people’s reminiscence projects, gardening for wellbeing sessions, hundreds of volunteer opportunities, and apprenticeships to support young people in their careers.
It’s been an incredibly challenging few years for everyone and we are experiencing high demand across all our projects. We are eager to continue running free or low cost services for those who need us most and we want to stay free and open to visit throughout the year.
But to do so, we need your help to cover our increasing costs! As well as increases to utility bills, we’ve been hit hard by animal feed and bedding increases. This puts extra pressure on the small staff team to raise more and more income, whilst keeping any fees as affordable as we can.
We have a minimum target of £20,000 to raise by the end of the financial year in order to break event. Any donations you can give are hugely appreciated.
It’s rare to find such an innovative place serving so many in the community. The Farm is a beacon of light for all local people offering vitality, connection & nature in the middle of the busy city. It’s a place for people to truly connect with what matters.
This corner of England. Keep it going for the community – for the young farmers, the schoolchildren, the disadvantaged, the cared for and the carers, the young offenders, the teachers. It has something for everyone.
The farm is a rare and important touchstone with rural life in this ever-building neighbourhood. It deserves massive support.
We live just up the road – we love all the fresh produce you sell and know how vitally important the role is that you play within our community.
