Pictures give an impression of the event only

Spitalfields City Farm is a lovely place to take your kids. The chief attraction is, of course, the farmyard animals. They've got chickens, ducks, geese, sheep and rabbits, plus a few pigs and a famous donkey.

But how about helping them out, and doing a bit of work? The farm is run by volunteers and they are always looking for people to muck in on the farm, and help out in the gardens.

It's not quite as simple as just turning up though -- if you want to work on the farm then you'll have to fill in an application form and have an interview first... and there's a waiting list. If you can't get a place then you might have better luck at the gardening sessions.

 

Have you got a review?  Or a question about this event?

 Guest – “Could you tell me the process for volunteering to help out at the farm please?”

Admin – “They have different rules depending on what you want to do. If you want to volunteer to work with the animals, for example, then you have to contact them through their website and fill in an application form. They will then arrange an interview. But if you just want to do something like gardening, then it seems a little easier.Take a look at this page, which contains all the details -- http://spitalfieldscityfarm.org/get_involved”
