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.

Check out what we’ve been up to in the community recently!

School gardening sessions are back up and running at St Mary’s Primary in RBKC! Thanks to the amazing school caretaker who watered the beds over the summer, there is a glut of #raspberries that staff and pupils have been enjoying!

City farms and community gardens would simply not exist if it wasn’t for the wonderful people working & volunteering for them, looking after the animals & the land, and educating the next generation.

The #LondonHarvestFestival is here to celebrate them
