Spitalfields City Farm Calendar

October 23, 2021
by the gentle author


“There is poetry in the unexpected presence of agriculture in the city and it always makes my heart leap to hear animal cries in this urban setting, connecting me to the rural landscape beyond and reminding us of the fields that were here before the streets were built up. Despite the tower blocks visible through the greenery at Spitalfields City Farm, it is nature that prevails here.”

I am delighted to announce the first Spitalfields Life calendar, produced in support of our beloved Spitalfields City Farm and featuring Rachel Ferriman‘s splendid photographs from her features published in these pages.

This handsome wall calendar is a collaboration between our friends Newmans Stationers who have done the printing, Baddeley Brothers who have donated handmade envelopes and Gardners Bags who have donated paper bags.

    Absolutely delighted to see Rachel’s beautiful images of the farm and read your spot on view. It is very humbling to work as a volunteer at the farm and you are right in feeling the imprint of past generations when immersed in the day to day business.
    Thank you for your generous work on the farms behalf. Cant wait to get my calendar.

    Dear Gentle Author ~ Thank you for bringing this splendid calendar to light with a view to enhancing our lives with a glimpse of the delights that a city farm can bring. Please would you be so kind as to give an idea of the daily/monthly format of the calendar. Folk like me require a certain amount of space allocated to each passing day in order to fill in all that they have to do! Thank you and warmest wishes from Colette
