Despite this, the farm is located in one of the most deprived and densely populated wards of Tower Hamlets (DOE 1996); although Spitalfield’s remains a vibrant and colourful multi-cultural area with strong community links."
School children regularly visit the farm which means the animals are used to crowds and 'people' attention.
"Spitalfield’s City Farm was originally set up by volunteers in 1978 and we still rely on volunteers today to help maintain the farm and gardens, look after the animals and assist us delivering projects. In short, without volunteers there would be no farm. Come down and visit the animals and get involved in a variety of activities. Volunteering, team building, or school trips."
