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?

More Polytunnel Labour!

Today, most of the regulars turned up including Alison, Helen, Helene, Jonathan and Ellis along with gardening and polytunnel construction expert, Mike. Further to the ground preparation and laying of the foundation pieces of the polytunnel; frame, we all set about constructing the frame according to the meticulous measurements which were taken in the previous week. Claire did a stirling job of standing in for Tracey due to her hospital appointment, helping to construct the polytunnel and assisting Helen in sawing a large dustbin in half in order for her to plant up the two blueberry bushes which she had been very eager to do!



Very relieved blueberry bushes!

All had gone very well and the only real issue was the fact that there was a leak in the water supply system and lack of rain over the past month and a half had meant we had completely drained the water butts! This was resolved in the most part by the fact that we had filled the butts with flaggons of water which we filled up in the office beforehand.
