Spitalfields City Farm Guardians
Lutfun Hussain runs the Coriander Club, where, with the help of volunteers primarily from the local Bengali communities, she grows crops in rotation in raised beds and polytunnels. Volunteers provide the labour, learn new skills, and take home some produce at the end of the day.
Richard Walker co-ordinates volunteers at the Spiralfields permaculture Garden at the farm. This garden has no mains water, and is designed to be drought-resistant. Richard works with volunteers from different backgrounds.
Nathalie Aby volunteers at the farm. She grows her chilies in pots in the polytunnel.
Basilia Gondo and other members of the Zimbabwean Association meet regularly at the farm, where they grow Zimbabwean crops on a couple of raised beds, and sometimes cook meals for everyone.
