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?

Getting ready for the big day

This week has been quieter after the marathon we did last week, but the volunteers have been hard at work getting the allotment ready for next week's Celebration. We obviously want it to look its best, so we've been cleaning, tidying and painting.

We welcomed new recruit Lisa who immediately got stuck in to every job she had suggested to her - a great start!

The fire-pit circle benchs are now a very nice shade of blue, as is the mended picnic bench. Thank you to Ellis, Dan and Lisa for working so hard to get them finished - hope the paint washed off! We've also completely tidied out and re-organised the shed - which may or may not make it easier to use - time will tell!

Now we just need to put the finishing touches to the polytunnel and see if we can convince the weather gods to give us a dry day next Thursday.
