Mission Statement

Vauxhall City Farm is the most centrally located farm in London. The farmyard, gardens & cafe are open access spaces and entry is donation based. Groups wanting to visit need to book in advance. We are open Tuesday – Sunday, 10.30am – 4pm.

Our vision is a city where people from all communities are empowered to experience nature to enhance their health, well-being and life chances.

Our mission, therefore, is to use the setting of an urban farm to provide educational, recreational and therapeutic activities that:

  • Support disadvantaged and disabled people to boost their confidence and aspirations
  • Promote emotional, mental, social and physical well-being
  • Develop environmental awareness and action
  • Strengthen community cohesion
  • Create enjoyment for members of the public.

Respect: We value and nurture the contribution of all those we work with, from our farm animals and the environment, to our staff, volunteers, partners and beneficiaries.

Collaboration: We believe consultation, co-production, partnership and teamwork are essential ingredients for sustainable change.

Transformation: We strive to inspire change that will achieve powerful social, environmental and well-being outcomes for communities and people.

Creativity: We take an innovative and resourceful approach to our work which means we are always learning and pushing ourselves to do better.

Inclusivity: We value diversity in everything we do and work hard to ensure different viewpoints are given an equal voice through our projects.

Professionalism: We are a responsible and efficient organisation, with a working culture rooted in sound management, business practice and governance.
