Welcome to Hogacre!

  The Cafe at Hogacre Common is now open, Sundays through summer, noon-17.00


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.



Help Hogacre Common thrive: join our workparties

- every 4th Sunday of the month

Sunday 21st Jan saw our first small but perfectly-formed work party ‘freeing the trees’ from their sleeves, now that they are mature enough to stand alone. We aim to work on-site every 4th Sunday of the month. Jobs include removing tree guards, staking trees, labeling fruit trees, planting meadow flower seeds, cutting fire wood, building raised beds on the hard tennis court…

Work party this Sunday – 22nd July.

Coinciding with ‘Where the Wild things are’ – family fun day
