How much do you know about the work of the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens?
In 1972 the first city farm was established in Kentish Town, London. This not only included gardening space but also farm animals, influenced by the children’s farm movement in the Netherlands.
Since the early days in the 1960s and 70s there are now more than 120 city and school farms, nearly 1,000 community gardens and a growing number of community-managed allotments. They help to empower people of all ages and backgrounds to build
better communities, often in deprived areas.
