We feel passionately about providing employability opportunities and support to our community. Young people in London are often not aware of the career opportunities in farming and food and that’s where we come in. We aim to provide a number of programmes and initiatives to show people that living in the city doesn’t stop you from pursuing a career in farming, agriculture and food.

Employability Programmes

Aged 16-25? Unemployed and not in education? Want to Get Out, Do More, See More, Be More? Great! The New Shoots programme might just be perfect for you!
A Pupil Engagement Programme - Based in the unique setting of our urban farm; ROOTED supports young people to develop the confidence, skills & motivation they need to engage with learning.
SOIL - Sensory Opportunities, Inspiring Learning! A 6 week programme (2-3 hours per week) designed for children and young people who require a flexible approach to learning within a therapeutic environment.
We understand that getting young people into employment or back into education is about personal development, as well as educational attainment.
