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?

New volunteers and lots to do

We got lots done today thanks to some new volunteers. Katie came along to see what we do, and helped Dan and Ellis get through lots of planting, which is great as we're a bit behind, having spent so long getting the polytunnel up.

We were also delighted that Mark's Dad came along to help him with the roof for the clay oven. We're aiming to use recycled materials where possible, so we re-used slats from pallets to provide us with the roof laths. We're also hoping to use opened-out aluminium cans to tile the roof, which should make for an unusual look.

The oven is now safely wrapped up with a temporary shelter and we'll hopefully add the final layers and the can slates to it next week.
