A little bit about us…

 

Growing Plants, Growing People, Growing Communities.

 

Hammersmith Community Gardens Association (HCGA)  is a local environmental charity set up in 1984.  We manage four community gardens in the London Borough of Hammersmith & 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.

Easter play scheme in full swing at #PhoenixFarmInWhiteCity and #RavenscourtParkGlasshouses

Drop into our community gardens this Easter for fun nature activities for families with children aged 12 years and under. No booking required. If very busy, we may need to limit numbers on the gate. This is not a drop off play scheme, families need to stay and play.

With huge thanks to funders @bbccin for making this possible.

Our Get Out There! volunteer group braved the changeable weather to build some raised beds at @thesulgraveclub, a local voluntary youth organisation. We can`t wait to see what the children will be growing in them!

Flowering beauties on a blustery day last week at North End Road, where we do some maintenance on the street beds. Maintenance contracts such as this give us valuable non-restricted income to run our charitable activities as well as cheering up our local area 🌱

Hafsah who is the school gardener at Hammersmith Academy shares how she manages a common chicken ailment called pasty butt also know as vent gleet and other names. She’ll know if it has worked depending on the chickens behaviour but also if there are some new eggs that have been laid by her! #urbangarden #chicken #schoolgarden #hammersmith #hcga #gardening ...
