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.

So brilliant to see local people engaging with this community garden space #godolphingardens and with our brilliant #volunteers ! Some young guys were enjoying some time in the park and they offered to help our Get Out There team #volunteers to rake up leaves. A few of their friends arrived and the next thing you know our volunteers our helping the young guys fix their bikes. Just a really friendly, positive moment that we wanted to share with you all #mondaymotivation #communityspirit #community #gardening #communitygardening #getoutthereteam #communityvolunteering ...

It may be a bit wet at the moment but it’s perfect mulching weather!

The Get Out There! team had a day off from digging and weeding today to explore Kew Gardens! It really is such an amazing place, some of our experienced plants people in the group discovered new plants and ideas and our newest member, who was a first timer to Kew, was surprised, when we stopped for lunch and looked at the map, to discover we had only seen one tiny corner of that vast garden- he can’t wait for the next visit! Huge thanks to @kewgardens #kewgardenscommunityaccess scheme for making it possible
