Dagenham Farm welcomes volunteers during peak season to help out with many tasks on the farm, including planting, weeding, watering and harvesting. We can find work to suit different strengths, abilities and preferences. Alice and Ashlea look forward to seeing you on the farm soon.

Pre-booking essential. You can request a space to volunteer with us on Tuesday afternoons 2pm-5pm. The 2024 sessions start on 11 June.

Register your interest and if there isn't a spot free now we'll be in touch as soon as one comes up. Please fill in our volunteer form and email it back to us.
