In partnership with Hammersmith Community Gardens Association (HCGA)
Since its launch 4 years ago, a huge amount of work has been done to improve the green spaces around Hanwell. We are pleased to announce that the Hammersmith Community Gardens Association is bringing its 35 years of experience to Hanwell to help with the Green Hanwell Project. Hammersmith Community Gardens Association is manging the project on behalf of HBL.
Much is known about the health benefits of gardening; we want to add this to the benefits of meeting and working with other members of our community to help make even better greener spaces and give people the chance to have access to fresh fruits and vegetables grown in our community gardens. All our community gardening sessions will give people the time and space to have a chat over a cup of tea whilst helping make a better environment.
Every third Tuesday of the month there will be a free workshop at the Hanwell Community Centre 4-6pm where all are welcome to get involved in a fun gardening or environment-based activity.
The first Saturday of each month will be a Community Gardening Day in one of the three main gardens we will be concentrating on this year – Paddington Court, the Gurnell Grove Gardens and Copley Woodland.
Gurnell Grove Gardens have some wonderful well stocked beds and raised planters. There will be a weekday community gardening group every second Tuesday of the month. We will maintain and improve the gardens in Gurnell Grove and will sow seeds and take cuttings that can be used in other gardens in the area. Come along to learn some new horticultural skills or share your own knowledge.
