Grow Food, Grow Community
We are an award winning ‘upcycled market garden’ which uses reclaimed materials to encourage everyone to grow and share fresh, healthy food for the benefit of all. We are a cooperatively run social enterprise which encourages community-led change and collaborative regeneration.
A Space for Reconnections…
Reconnect with Nature
Life is abundant. At Bentley Urban Farm (BUF) we use reclaimed materials grow fresh, healthy food for our community, and food, shelter and habitats for wildlife. We live by the permaculture principles of Earth Care, People Care and Future Care.
Reconnect with Creativity
We humans are innately creative. At BUF you can engage with art and music no matter how talented (or untalented) you may think you are. From jamming sessions to painting murals, BUF is a place to fulfill your creative urges.
Reconnect with Each Other
In these troubling times it is more important than ever to reconnect with each other. One of the best things about BUF is that everyone is equal and connections and friendships are made between people who would never usual meet elsewhere.
Watch this Space!
We started life as an anti-food poverty campaign, providing fresh, healthy produce to the vulnerable and teaching people how to save money by growing their own food. This is still an important part of what we do, but there is also important work to be done around changing society’s relationship to food. Growing, sharing, cooking and eating together creates unity as well as good physical and mental well-being. We believe that we can all work to builder healthier people and communities through the simple act of commensality. To this end we are currently building an area where we can regularly cook and eat together in a safe, outdoor environment.
