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.

What’s on?

New Season Cafe

starts Sunday 3rd May 12.00-5.00!

The Field Kitchen

Come and enjoy a delicious vegetarian or vegan lunch or afternoon tea in the beautiful countryside-surroundings that are Hogacre!


New and exciting things happen a lot at Hogacre. As the weather warms up we’ll have more volunteer days and fun family events. 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.
