Verm-X Support Stepney City Farm Animals the Natural Way
Verm-X is delighted to announce an exciting new sponsorship with Stepney City Farm, where they will be providing Verm-X for all the animals in keeping with the farms natural approach to management.
Based in the heart of Stepney, in London’s East End, the farm provides a severely deprived community with an opportunity to experience rural life and interact with animals. A meeting place bringing people from all walks of life together, Stepney City Farm provides therapeutic and educational benefits to all those wishing to get involved.
The working farm relies heavily on volunteer support as its low turnover only allows for one full time employee - the farm manager. Animals at the farm include cattle, donkeys, sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits and ferrets, and of course a couple of farm cats.
The farm run several targeted volunteering schemes for vulnerable adults and children, operate a mobile farm for school visits, a chick incubator programme and also numerous craft workshops.
Stepney City Farm has made a positive impact on an estimated 4,500 people in the last year alone, with some 800 of these reached through the delivery of specific projects thanks to the dedicated team of staff and volunteers with specialist skills.
The farm is strongly structured around the permaculture principles, and to enhance this, the farm rears their animals as organically as possible. As Verm-X is the only approved product of its type for use on organic farms and has several Green Apple Awards, recognising Environmental Best Practice, it was the obvious choice for Stepney City Farm.
Verm-X Managing Director Philip Ghazala feels passionately about the incredible services the farm provides to the community: “Stepney City Farm is a fantastic place that has enhanced the lives of so many people, providing them with valuable opportunities to learn about, and experience first-hand, a working farm.
“We are delighted to provide all of the animals with Verm-X and look forward to regular visits to the farm to see the progress and exciting developments the enterprising staff and volunteers are constantly working towards.”
