Welcome to Hogacre!
Hogacre Common is a fourteen acre site less than a mile from the centre of Oxford 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.
Activities, events and projects are made possible by members of the local community. There are lots of ways that you can get involved too. Just let us know what you would like to do.
Hogacre Cafe – Opens this Sunday 8th May 12.00 – 17.00
and every Sunday till October
Oxgrow – Hogacre’s Community Allotment – every Sunday from 13.00
New and exciting things happen a lot at Hogacre. Sign up to the mailing list (in the box on the right side of this page) if you’d like to hear about upcoming Hogacre events and news.
Bees: We’ve just this week taken delivery of a new hive – horizontal top bar – and swarm. Sadly, one of our hives didn’t survive the winter. But 3 did! Go down there and witness the start of the new bee season with increasing hive activity on warm, dry days.
Trees: The chestnut tree buds are looking incredible – sticky and unfurling… Some of the trees in the orchard are blossoming – pear, quince and plum bursting into leaf, apple showing little sign of life yet, but soon to follow.
