The Hogsmill Community Garden has now been open for over 4 years. The garden addresses the need for more outdoor community spaces, with opportunities to improve health and gain practical skills in environmental practices.
The project also involves ongoing workshops in plant propagation, vegetable and fruit growing, composting as well as garden maintenance following organic growing principles.
The Community Garden is open 3 days a week: Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday from 11am – 3pm throughout the year.
We host Seed Bank and Swaps events that include seed swapping, home-cooked food, local group gardening projects, stalls and extra swapping sessions. Details for our next event will be posted on our site!

We have an electrically powered cargo trike available for hire by community groups for events or if you need to move tools, plants or fruit and veg. She often comes out with us but we want to put her to better use!
If you are interested in getting involved in any of our projects please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are set up to help support people who want to be involved and local groups who need advice and assistance on sustainability issues. If you have an idea but aren’t sure about funding and all its practicalities for a project you are planning (or simply an idea) – from sustainable garden design to litter picks and anything else in between drop us a line.
