Growing Plants... Growing People... Growing Communities.

    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!

    'The Little Red Hen' is an American fable first shared by Mary Mapes Dodge in St. Nicholas Magazine (1874). The story teaches children the importance of hard work and initiative.

    Here are two of our red hens having a well-deserved rest after an industrious day.
