Green Spaces Project of the Month

May 2002 - Surrey Docks Farms. Nr Peckham
Contact: Tel. 013420 824181, email:

The Surrey Dock Farm is a short bus ride from Peckham. It is a nice change from the inner city of Peckham itself. As you enter the farm gates you are transported to the countryside because of the noise and smells of the animals. The 2.2 acres of farm in the city is unexpected and dynamic because as you approach the site there is no indication of what you are about to discover.

The farm offers wonderful opportunities for people to learn about food production, and also allows active participation by visitors to the farm. All the animals are organically farmed and a small amount of food is produced for sale to the public.

On 27th March 2002 HRH Prince of Wales visited Surrey Docks Farm. The Prince is the Patron of the Federation of City Farms and was there to boost the cause of city farms, many of which were forced to close last year because of the difficulties resulting from foot and mouth disease.
