Welcome to Hogacre
Hogacre Common is a fourteen acre site less than a mile from the centre of Oxford, to the south-west of the City and within its fertile flood plains. Bounded by streams on three sides and only accessible by foot, it features field, woodland and aquatic habitats and hosts low carbon community activities and events.
Formally the sports ground for Corpus Christi college, it has been leased to the community since 2011 for a jar of honey a year!
We won a grant from The Tree Council to celebrate National Tree Week (28th Nov – 6th Dec) to plant a new Community Forest Garden. We intend to plant ‘exotic’ fruit and nut trees such as almond, fig, apricot, persimmon, peach and nectarine. They will replace some of the Ash trees Hogacre has lost to Ash dieback. More info to follow. Sign up for our occasional newsletter.
Last year we won a grant for exciting collaborative projects with Oxfordshire CPRE, including disabled access and info boards. For details, see ‘Awards‘.
Activities are on going at Hogacre. Have a look here.
