We are running a Gardening for Beginners course. It’s a six-session course, held in our premises on Hoxton Street and will run for an hour on Monday afternoons, starting on Monday, September 20th. All ages, beginners and those with some experience are welcome and the course will be delivered by our Community Gardener, Stephen.

We will learn about, soil, compost, nutrients, watering, plant species, propagation and growing vegetables.

The cost is £60 for waged; £30 for unwaged and this includes tuition, seeds, pots, organic compost, the use of our greenhouses to germinate any plants as well as free after course email support. Refreshments will be provided.

HELP US PLANT AN ORCHARD

at Hoxton Trust Community Garden,
156 Hoxton Street, N1 6SH

Help us prepare some ground in our Community Garden so we can plant an orchard. We are looking for between 6 and 8 people to join us to dig 8 holes in the ground and then plant some fruit trees. This will be an amazing experience as the trees will last a lifetime as well as producing fruit we will give out free. Covid allowing this is now planned for mid-September 2021.

If you are interested, please email Stephen.

CAGE TROLLEY PROJECT

at The Yard behind
156 Hoxton Street, N1 6SH

We are creating a seasonal moving garden from a recycled supermarket cage trolley. The trolley will be filled with containers of various sizes containing our home made compost. Out of these we’ll grow a melange of flowers and climbers, food and foliage. This will create a living mobile plant/art installation for Hoxton Street.

This is totally free and promises to be a fun and fruitful experience for both those who create and those who just enjoy. If you would like to get involved in this creative endeavour please contact Stephen.

Alternatively, just drop by the garden on the days Stephen works – Monday and Tuesday – and talk to him directly.


A day to be arranged
GARDEN LIBRARY

at the Hoxton Trust,
156 Hoxton Street, N1 6SH

Help us catalogue around 100 gardening books we have so we get our Garden Library project up and running. We want to lend these books out for free. You will need to be familiar with Microsoft Office and an instinct for organisation.
