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

Watering the willow – coloured stems for basket weaving

Hay-bale veg

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.
