Get Involved!

Gardening sessions: Every Sunday 1-4PM

We run open sessions in our garden throughout the year. All the work will be done collaboratively and volunteers will take home a share of the day’s harvest. Tools and everything else will be provided, you just have to show up. But do bring with you:

  • strong shoes
  • warm clothes that can get dirty
  • a bag or a box to take home a share of the day’s harvest
  • and if you have any… food waste, because our compost bin is always hungry (but no meat or cooked food please)

While we like it if people arrive at the start of the session, there is no obligation to do so.

If you don’t fancy doing anything very much, please just come and use the space during the afternoon. Hogacre Common is a community asset so come and enjoy the surroundings, bring some lunch to eat on the grass, bring a guitar and sing to the diggers, bring a football or stare at the sky.
