We have a number of on-going projects at Hammersmith Community Gardens Association, working with individuals, groups and organisations across West London:
The Get Out There! project offers local unemployed people the opportunity to learn new skills in basic environmental management. Participants get the opportunity to visit and work on a range of different habitats across London as well as local sites in Hammersmith and Fulham.
The Grow Well project launched in September 2012. We work with local people across the Hammersmith and Fulham borough to provide therapeutic gardening sessions for those who have struggled with mental or physical wellbeing during the pandemic
Our Men in Sheds group meet at Godolphin Gardens several times a week to work on their own projects and to maintain the garden. Men in Sheds is a nationwide initiative to get men connecting and socialising.
We run weekly community gardening sessions in Queen’s Park Gardens including digging and planting, wildlife gardening and children’s activities in the school holidays.
For nearly ten years HCGA has been running weekly gardening sessions on a Tuesday afternoon at the community growing beds in Normand Park.
We run regular gardening sessions at Penfold Community Hub, Westbourne Park Allotments and Fisherton Estate Community Plots in Westminster.
We run a weekly volunteer group in the Community Garden at Aisgill Community Hub in Earls Court
We have run several successful projects in the past, the details of which can be found here. We would be happy to run similar projects again in the future if funding or partnership opportunities allowed.
