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?

Finishing Touches

One more day to go before the big celebration! It's been all go, trying to get everything looking its best and keeping on top of the weeding and all the other jobs that need doing, like watering, harvesting, and trimming back the plum trees before they break under the weight of their crop.

The regular volunteers have done a brilliant job, and the seating circle and picnic benches now look amazing and we've now got the fruit cage mostly back under control.

We've also had the Groundwork work team in helping with the final touches to the polytunnel - and they've done a great job, including installing some of the totem-poles we made with New College Nottingham and the Clay Oven workshop folk.

Nick and Dan from the work team put the mesh on the polytunnel doors - notice a colour theme here?!

So, fingers crossed that the weather holds tomorrow - it's looking a bit dodgy...
