Charity People are delighted to be supporting a city farm, a free-entry urban oasis in Tower Hamlets offering a unique and creative natural environment for all, to recruit a Volunteer & Community Outreach Manager.

At a time of great challenge with food poverty and the cost-of-living crisis, this small ambitious charity accomplishes a lot for the local community. As part of their 2022-2025 strategy, their vision is to create a space for all, that empowers people to make a positive change to their lives, the local community and the planet, through education, community and wellbeing initiatives.

Volunteering plays a crucial, central role on the farm.
