Our favourite spot in Tower Hamlets is celebrating 40 years birthday this year but that doesn’t mean they are feeling middle-aged at all merely hitting their stride. It means a heap of wonderful family events including a How Does Your Garden Grow with Riverside Cares Free Craft Party on 30 May
Here are the diary dates:
May Day Fest at Stepney City Farm and 40th birthday celebration on May 6th
Amble over for a spot of Sheep Shearing, Spinning, Natural Fabric Dyeing, Maypole dancing, Barn dancing and of course the wonderful café
Easter Fun Day run by Liberty Church on Monday 22 April, which will include a bouncy castle and other cool stuff!
Stepney City Farm is such a brilliant local resource that we love to support and shout out about. It’s roots (pun intended) in a community farm called Stepping Stones Farm set up by local residents in 1979 on a derelict site bombed in World War II. Going even further into local history, it was originally the site of Worcester House which carried the local nickname ‘King Johns Palace’ in the Parish of Old Forde in Stratford le Bowe there’s a super post in Spitalfields Life about the site which has been the focus of attention of archaeologists from the Museum of London. Today Stepney City Farm is a vibrant welcoming place with volunteering opportunities, pottery and woodturning classes, a wonderful cafe, planting beds and poly-tunnels, animals and is our favourite spot for Riverside Cares pop up events.
