Phoenix Farm in White City is an award winning project comprising a unique ¾ acre horticultural site in west London devoted to food growing and enhancing biodiversity. The site is managed on organic principles and comprises one glasshouse and 3 poly tunnels and growing beds. There is a wildlife pond, hens, rabbits and an apiary. Some of the produce is used on site and given to volunteers and some is sold to a local restaurant.

The project is overseen by the manager and offers opportunities for both school visits and volunteering opportunities for the local community. The site also hosts workshops including pruning, apple tree grafting, bee keeping and seasonal community events
