As an initiative of people from the local community Wellgate Community Farm came to life in 1982 on a 1.5 acre wasteland granted by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham in the form of a management agreement.  The name Wellgate was derived from the local areas of Chadwell Heath and Marks Gate.  In 1984 the farm achieved charity status. In 2002 the Farm was able to gain a long-term lease from the Local Authority, which included a further half acre of land. In 2003 Wellgate Community Farm became incorporated.
