Save Kentish Town City Farm

Save Kentish Town City Farm

To ensure that sufficient funding is available to run this National treasure.

Why is this important?

Over the past 40 years Kentish Town City Farm has been a focal point for the whole local community. In 1972 a team of volunteers, farm workers and architects worked together to develop the site. Throughout its history, The Farm has been a vital resource for the physical and mental health of the residents of Camden and indeed London. It has hosted a range of different community events, from pop up art stalls to pony riding and free gardening lessons.

The Farm has inspired countless generations of children who have enjoyed getting hands-on responsibilities - such as cleaning and feeding the animals. It is a valuable teaching tool for children and a bastion of beauty in an increasingly concrete inner city area.

However, Kentish Town City Farm is under threat. The Farm has already lost £40,000 in funding and is being pushed towards market led corporate events. Less time will be available to teach the children, heal the depressed and combat the ethos of greed. Those who see value only in money are trying to subvert that which is ours, nature, community, beauty and health. These things are given to us free of charge at birth.

We must act now before our wonderful Farm is lost forever. Let’s ensure that they celebrate another 40 years - and more!

  • I was really lucky to be linked to Kentish Town City Farm when I was at primary school. My grandparents lived just off Queens Crescent market in the 1970s so I played at the farm a lot. It was amazing to milk goats and be close to nature. It lead my love of nature to get a degree in Biology and appreciate the nature around us in inner city areas. PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION. thank You

Love, peace and posativity to all. Lets keep those signatures coming. The more we have the greater the pressure on Camden and Boris. It says only 10 need to sign a petition for it to be debated by Camden but I think that is bureaucratic slight of hand. Please keep spreading the word.

Thank you to all who have signed. What a response. It seems that many people who visit are not aware of the constant pressure to tear it down and build yet more homes for the rich. I have contacted The Camden New Journal, Kentishtowner and The Eden Project to advertise the petition. Please all continue the good work and try to pass on the link to get more signatures . Yours Tom L-L
