Social Farms & Gardens

The leading UK charity dedicated to supporting city farms, community gardens, care farms & other green spaces

Social Farms & Gardens is a UK wide charity supporting communities to farm, garden and grow together.

Social Farms & Gardens was formed by the merger of two long established membership-based charities, the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens and Care Farming UK.

In 2016 the Community Composting Network was merged with the organisation.

Members operate across a wide spectrum, offering services including Green Care, community and social based activities. There is often considerable crossover in delivery different settings. For example, a city farm may be involved in both community development and care farming activities. By focussing on the services or activities delivered or facilitated by our members, rather than the physical form upon which our members operate (e.g. a farm, garden, school, orchard), we aim to widen the opportunities open to our members and the wider sector.
