A little bit about us…

 

Growing Plants, Growing People, Growing Communities.

 

Hammersmith Community Gardens Association is a local environmental charity set up in 1984, we manage four community gardens in Hammersmith and Fulham.

HCGA has a range of projects which include conservation training schemes, volunteer gardening sessions, health and wellbeing projects, environmental playschemes and environmental education in local schools.

We also assist local groups in the design, plan and management of their green spaces. We promote environmental sustainability within the borough and manage our sites to maximise biodiversity and encourage wildlife.

An afternoon weeding, pruning and planting spring flowers in the sunshine at the Church of the Holy Innocent on Paddenswick Road. Transforming both the space and our mood. We loved it. A reminder that gardening is such a powerful medicine especially during challenging times.
