Hard tennis court
Previously, briefly run as a safe space children’s garden, Hogacre’s hard tennis courts are ‘potential looking for a purpose’. There are now exciting plans being drawn up for the space.
Meanwhile, a number of small projects are happening there:
Hop-growing (‘name Hogacre’s lock-down beer’ competition to follow!)
Coloured-stem willow growing for basket weaving
To get the hay-bales ready for growing, we watered them daily and then watered them for two weeks with nitrogen-rich ‘tea’ made from nettles, picked on site.
