Our Hive

Our vision has always been to connect with, gather and celebrate the rich array of people in the Eastleigh borough who are already getting their hands dirty and their fingers green with wilder designs; ecological gardening; foraging; plant-based cooking; traditional crafts; forest schooling; wildlife conservation and environmental campaigns.  


Wild Hive started life as a collaborative bunch of like-minded Community Farm-Hands, Educators, Conservationists and Ecologists, and has grown into a Community Interest Company with a co-operative core. As we grow, we know our Wild Hive will take shape organically.  We are proud of and grateful to our core team of Directors and many other pioneering supporters who have helped to get our wild ideas off the ground.  


We are very much looking forward to gathering more Project Pro-Activists and Friends as our Wild Hive Collective CIC grows!  If you feel you have skills or expertise to add to our wild mix, please do take a few minutes to complete our register interest form or email Jo & Lizzie at
