Farm in London struggles to survive under virus lockdown


Vauxhall City Farm, which has been a part of south London for over 40 years, struggles to stay afloat as its funds dwindle under the capital's virus lockdown measures. The farm's CEO Monica Tyler says they have launched an emergency appeal in an effort to raise enough money to keep the organisation running. The farm is home to animals such as alpacas, goats, ducks and chickens and hosts community events and educational programmes. But with its main grounds and cafe closed and with Londoners under confinement Tyler says they have lost 80 percent of their income streams.
