Oxford City Farm’s Crowdfunding Campaign is LIVE!
Oxford City Farm wants to bring all the proven health, social and environmental benefits of city farming to our urban community.
We have just taken on a 40 year lease on a piece of derelict land in East Oxford (just off Cornwallis Rd, OX4) and thanks to our lovely volunteers we have already made some real progress. We have growing spaces, a polytunnel, bee hives, and for the last few months some pigs-on-loan from a local farmer!
But we need to raise significant funds if we are to realise our vision of a free to access space where people of all ages and backgrounds can learn to grow and have fun together, through hands-on experiences with farm animals and food production.
Through this Crowdfunding Campaign we hope to raise £12,000 to bring water and electricity onto the site – two essentials for moving the project forward. We will be able to scale up our community growing, install toilets and handwashing facilities and be in a position to look after animals permanently on the site!
If we exceed our target it will mean we can do even more!
We have got some great rewards including generous donations from local foody businesses, lovely experience days and fair trade organic tea towels and tote bags with beautiful designs on.
Please share the campaign far and wide!
