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.

More sad news from Windmill

After all our hard work and great fun from the last week, we are very sad to report that our polytunnel has been vandalised.  It is thought that the incident happened sometime between  Sunday Lunchtime and Monday and it involved the polytunnel covering being sliced, either with a knife or scissors, leaving the roof open and the contents exposed.  After all the dedication and graft which was put into the building of the tunnel we are very keen to see that the perpetrators are caught.  The police have been informed and we would kindly ask that if anyone has any information on, or saw the incident taking place to contact them as soon as possible.  Meanwhile, the task of buying new covering and rebuilding the polytunnel begins from now on and we hope to restore it as soon as possible.

Exposed - equipment and produce within the damaged polytunnel

Sliced apart - polytunnel covering

Mindless vandalism - roof bars can now be seen after the polytunnel covering was cut
