Ms Mayer, a nurse at Helen and Douglas House children’s hospice in East Oxford, was first inspired by the city farms she grew up with in London.
She said: “I had seen what amazing resources they are for city kids to learn about food farming and animals, but what I love about them is that it is learning by doing; being surrounded by lovely animals.
“There are so many people who seem to get an immense therapeutic benefit from it.”
The Oxford City Farm group now has eight trustees, a steering group of 12, 220 people on its mailing list and 800 followers on Facebook.
Ms Mayer, 44, added: “So many people have just been waiting for this lease to be signed.”
