Celebrate Spring at the Farm! | Sat 1st April
April 1 @ 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Join us at the farm on Saturday 1st April 2017
We are holding a small event at Clitterhouse Farm on Saturday 1st April (9.30am – 1pm) to celebrate the arrival of spring!
We will be joined by some of the Hammersmith Academy school gardening team who will have a small plant sale and display. Come along and find out how you can make your garden or balcony look great this spring and summer and buy oriental poppies, strawberries, wallflowers, lavender, foxgloves, herbs and other plants.
We will also be joined by the lovely folk from the Hendon and District Archaeological Society (HADAS) who have been researching the rich history of Clitterhouse Farm. HADAS have conducted two archaeological digs at the farm and they will be on hand to discuss some of their fascinating findings so far.
We will also be selling hot and cold drinks and homemade cake at our farmhouse café. So come along and get to know your local community. We hope lots of our new neighbours from Claremont Village will join us too!
We will also send out details via our newsletter, so sign up to our mailing list (on the right-hand side) if you haven’t already.
Good News! £5k grant from Timberland’s ‘My Playgreen Award’
The Clitterhouse Farm Project have won a £5,000 grant from Timberland’s ‘My Playgreen’ award to develop a community garden. As many of you know, we have been working to turn a small piece of disused land along the southern edge of the farm into a community garden. The land has been very unloved for many years. We’ve cleared out a huge amount of rubbish and cut back the overgrowth so it’s looking a lot better. We’re eager to get working on making the space a valuable and working garden so this grant will help us to make a great start.
We have some design ideas for what we’d like to do in the space, but we’d love to hear what ideas you have too. We also want to form a committed gardening team to oversee the work and to help maintain the space throughout the year. If you’re interested, please come along to our event on Saturday 1st April and check out the space and let us know what you’d like to see there. We’ll also be taking down names of people who are interested in being part of the gardening team.
