About this Death Cafe

Stepney City Farm is a place which - amongst many other things - helps people to think about important things in the world around them.  We think that death and cycles of life are important.  A farm is also a place where we can see and have to often think about death as well as life, endings as well as beginnings.  


On the 30th we will be holding our 'Stepney Day of the Dead'; a day of various activities which will allow us to contemplate all aspects of Death and the Cycles of Life, as well as contemplating how we can recycle, reuse and compost more.


We will be running a Death Cafe in our own cafe as part of this day.
