*** Nature walks ***
Before the majority of our roasts we will run group nature walks, led by our resident nature expert and ornithologist, Nick. Go to Eventbrite to book your free space on to one of our walks.

And thank you for coming to our Harvest Festival! Over 500 people enjoyed an afternoon of local activities, food and music and we raised £1000 towards new projects such as sustainable energy in the Pavilion and Info. boards around the site. Thank you!


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.

Formally the sports ground for Corpus Christi college, it has been leased to the community since 2011 for a jar of honey a year!

Activities, events and projects are made possible by volunteers from the local community. There are lots of ways that you can get involved too. Just let us know what you would like to do.
