Five Ways to Help
In 2018 the farm celebrated 40 years of farming in the heart of Islington however, sustained funding pressures mean that we need to raise £30,000 to keep going and more to carry out essential renovation work. So we have launched our biggest local fundraising campaign for years - 5 ways to help.
You can donate to the farm in person using our donation boxes or talk to a member of staff, by post, by text or online through our local giving appeal page
Co-fund our Classroom Renovation project
Help us renovate the farm classroom and celebrate 40 years of city farming in Paradise Park, Islington with a programme of learning, hands on activity and play .
SPOnsor our London Marathon Runners
This year we have one marathon runner Coryn McGovern who has worked on the farm both as a volunteer and staff member since 2000. He wants to raise lots of sponsorship for the farm and would love your support. Find out more about his efforts on justgiving.
VOLUNTEER WITH YOUR OFFICE OR ORGANISATION
We host corporate volunteering days which help with team building and give something back to the community. We have lots of different things we need help with, such as building and planting the new garden, feeding the animals and helping with maintenance. And we ask volunteer teams to take part in the Muck Heap Challenge - as you can imagine our animals produce a fairly big amount of waste which we compost down to produce manure as fertiliser for ourselves and for sale to local gardeners - it's a big job which is so much helped by larger groups of people chipping in to do a bit of digging.

PUBLICISE WHAT’S GOING ON AT THE FARM
If you live in Islington you can have an estate agent style board outside your home for three weeks to publicise our latest fundraisers. The Farm gets paid for each board. The first one is the Farm’s Easter Fayre on Easter Bank Holiday Monday 22 April.
Email email@example.com with your full name, full address including post code, phone number in case (but this will only be if there's a problem putting up the sign) and any info about where they want the sign (ie on left of gate as you exit house).
