As an independent charity Vauxhall City Farm is not funded by central or local government. The Farm relies heavily on our own income generation and our supporters to keep the lights and heating on at the farm!
While it is never exactly easy to secure funding for the activities that we run and the services that we offer, we are often able to find grants to cover the costs of delivering our projects, but it is almost impossible to get anyone to fund core costs such as water, heating, and electricity.
As boring as it may be, we are simply unable to run any of the work we do withand , if we are sitting in the dark because no one paid the electricity bill!
Imagine the additional things we could do for visitors, service users, and our animals, if we didn’t have to generate £1500 a month on gas and electricity!
