Herts and Essex Community Farm is a non-for-profit community project. They started in October 2013 as there was a need in the community for more growing spaces, with the purpose to increase access to fresh, healthy, sustainable food and provide a shared space for people to cultivate skills, get exercise and make friends. They have had over 200 volunteers so far.

The farm sits on a ex-allotment site in Foldcroft, Harlow. The site is approximately just over 0.5 acres with a stream running along one end.
