Woodgate Valley Urban Farm is a Registered Charity which was set up on site
in 1988 by unpaid volunteers from the local community and it has operated, developed and maintained on that basis to this day.
It supports the community by offering hands on practical work experience for placements from certain local schools and colleges and also provides life skills training and confidence building in a supportive environment for individuals within our local community, in particular young people.
We are open every day for the general public, as casual visitors, to view and enjoy our livestock and also provide a resource for schools, organised trips and special needs groups whom we welcome following an advance booking.
Overall we provide an enabling and involving community resource allowing adults and children to experience rural activities in an otherwise urban environment, and gain a greater understanding of the need for and value of livestock.
We are a Registered Smallholding with DEFRA and a member of the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens.. Please note we are not a City Council provision
