Webster the duck
Henny (not a Hen)
DJ the horse
Jerry the alpaca
Edward the pig
Jean-Pierre the rabbit
We haven't even mentioned the sheep, goats, ferrets, shetland ponies, guinea pigs, fancy rats, ducklings and Waffle the goose!
The SLaM project provides a safe environment for participants from the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. Through horticultural therapy participants work in the farm’s vegetable gardens to grow vegetables and a variety of fruits, experiencing the joys of growing as a way for self-healing and mental well-being.
Our Spinners are a group of textile artists and craftsmen with an interest in natural dyes and fibres and their application to contemporary textiles.
The spinners cultivate vegetables and plants in the community garden so they can extract the dyestuff and produce handmade yarns for weaving, embroidery and knitting. The spinners offer education and training classes at the farm every Saturday from 10:30 - 2pm.
