- Visit Winter Village and meet Bayleaf!
- Article Post Date: Saturday 22.11.2014
At Winter Village, we are delighted to welcome Spitalfields City Farm as they are joining our Christmas build up by selling trees on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th.
And.... on Saturday 6th, meet Bayleaf. Well, we can't wait! Bayleaf is, of course, a donkey and is coming along to say hallo and to offer rides.
Spitalfields City Farm brings the countryside to the city. The Farm was started in 1978 as local people converted wasteland, a former railway depot, into allotments, having lost theirs to developers. With a long tradition in the East End of backyard farming, it wasn’t long before chickens, rabbits and geese appeared on the scene!
Less than a mile away from the City of London, today, this much loved urban oasis provides many opportunities for the community in and around the London Borough of Tower Hamlets to see, and work with, farm animals as well as to learn about horticulture and sustainability.
