Welcome to the Secret Garden behind Bobber's Mill in Nottingham

Welcome to Windmill Community Gardens, home of the Climate Friendly Gardeners Project.

We are a group of local people, helped by Groundwork Greater Nottingham, who are resurrecting a wonderful community garden in the heart of the city. You'll find us at the South end of Ascot Road, near Collins Cash and Carry. The Gardens are a great place where anyone can come to find out more about growing their own food in a changing climate. We cater for all abilities and welcome any nationality or age group.

Why not come and join us?

24th February - The Big Painting Week!

We were keeping our fingers crossed for the weather this week, as two wonderful groups from New College Nottingham had offered to help us, along with additional help from Claire and Helen.

The painting group came on Tuesday and Thursday and made a wonderful job of decorating our raised beds. The pictures don't do justice to them, so you should come and have a look for yourselves.  The designs were inspired by a number of colourful, gardening-related pictures which Helen had found on the internet

All in all, very productive and enjoyable days with glorious sunny weather as it turned out!
