Our aims

Co-design sessions, which included local residents, permaculture practitioners, members of community groups and students and staff from both of Oxford’s universities, identified OxGrow’s aims as:


OxGrow exists to increase knowledge and skills of food-growing and the natural environment in our community.


OxGrow provides a space where people can come to see different ways of growing food that they can replicate elsewhere.


OxGrow is a space where a whole range of different cultivation techniques and a wide variety of crops will be put to the test.

Community Building

OxGrow is a space that the community can call its own, where adults and children can meet, socialise and play.

There’s a more formal statement of what OxGrow is about in our Constitution.
