Vauxhall City Farm

Vauxhall City Farm is one of the oldest and most central city farms in London being located within earshot of Big Ben and in the shadow of MI6.

Given the open access nature of the farm, it would be very easy to dismiss VCF as simply being a cute place to visit and ‘all about the animals’. Behind the public face, the reality is that our animals, whilst much loved, are essentially a vehicle for education and change; the animals feature in many of our programmes and are key to helping our staff and volunteers engage with and deliver positive impact for both individual beneficiaries and groups from our wider community.

Our vision is a city where people from all communities are empowered to experience nature to enhance their health, well-being, and life chances and we use the setting of our urban farm to provide a wide range of educational, recreational and therapeutic support programmes and activities that:

• Support children and disadvantaged people to boost their confidence and aspirations via the development of personal, social, life and practical skills
• Promote emotional, mental, social and physical health and well-being
• Develop environmental awareness and action
• Strengthen community cohesion
• Create enjoyment and recreational opportunities for those from our local and wider communities
