It's Thursday 24th March 2022 and we will be joining City Farms across the UK on City Farm Day as they collectively focus on the work that they do to support young people.
During the last two years young people’s mental health has been disproportionately impacted following repeated lockdowns and life disruption. City Farms have played an important role in supporting young people in local communities – providing green spaces for them to spend time outdoors and volunteer opportunities to work with the Farm animals, grow food and look after nature.
There are more than 50 City Farms across the UK – connecting people in cities with food and farming: and supporting members of the local community via volunteering opportunities.
City Farm Day is all about celebrating the important role that these special places have in communities across the UK since the first one opened 50 years ago, back in 1972
Keep an eye out on social media throughout the day for more information on how young people get involved with Deen City Farm.
