A farm in the heart of the city

St Werburghs City Farm is a small charity. We welcome 60,000 visitors each year, and engage more than 3,500 people in activities that build resilience, reduce isolation and strengthen community.

One of our aims is to better connect people with the story of their food, from farm gate to plate. We also specialise in nature connection and outdoor engagement activities that promote greater health and wellbeing such as  providing placements for adults with learning disabilities to gain skills in organic gardening, helping a young person at risk of exclusion finish their education or providing a supportive space for someone struggling with their mental health to build greater connections, skills and confidence. Through a person-centre approach, we enable people to learn, grow and thrive.

Visit us

Due to Covd-19 restrictions, we are only open to the public 11am - 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays (last entry at 2.30pm)

During the week, we will be working with the volunteers, trainees and young people involved in our projects. As a small site with narrow paths, we cannot also be open to the public while our sites are in use.  

If you would like to find out more about accessing the Farm during the week or getting involved in one of our volunteer projects, please send us an email on office@swcityfarm.co.uk or call us on 0117 9428241
