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.
Coming soon: Hogacre Cafe – from May to end of October, every Sunday 12.00 – 17.00
Seed-sewing day – Sunday 24th April from midday!
Come and help us reclaim the grassland – from sports field to flower meadow!
Bring your spare wild-flower seeds! Bring a (seed-related?) cake for us to sell with afternoon tea. Bring a neighbour!
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.
Oxgrow: every Sunday from 13.00
