In growing food, we are growing community

Volunteering is central to the way we do things at Oxford City farm. People come from all walks of life to share their skills and enthusiasm, learn and make connections with others.

Our regular community farming sessions are open to all– there are plenty of farm activities to suit all abilities. Activities include: planting or harvesting vegetables, weeding and watering and we always stop for tea, cake and a chat half way through! Come and get stuck in and enjoy our space and like minded company.

To maintain safety during for all during the Covid 19 pandemic we are limiting numbers to our community farming sessions and asking particapants to sign up in advance of sessions. Email Volunteering@oxfordcityfarm.org.uk to book a place.
