Located close to the River Wandle, Deen City Farm at 39 Windsor Avenue, SW19, began life on a nearby site in 1978 and moved to its current location in 1980.
Tasked with providing a 'farm experience' to the the south London yoot, the project includes a riding school, mixed poultry, horses, rabbits, sheep, goats, pigs and cows to give kids a taste of country life.
The Growing Gardens.
Now boasting over ten permanent members of staff backed by a host of volunteers, the site is open to the public with free admission throughout the year. We loved it!
There's a strong education and environmental message throughout the farm. This wheel tells kids (and adults) what materials can go in compost.
Dog and pots.

Peacock. It took me ages to take this picture as the thing kept ducking down to fiddle with its harbls.
You gotta love this hairstyle.
Goats being fed.
Here he is again. He looks like he should be playing guitar in an indie band.
Leaving the park and heading towards Merton Abbey Mills.
