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?

A lawn at last!
In today's session, Tracey was joined by Ellis, Dan, Matt, Rosy, Philippa Chris and Helen. The primary focus was on sowing grass seeds to produce a lawn in the back area of the site. After much hard graft on digging out brambles and building debris and flattening out the ground it felt very good to finally sow the seed which will (hopefully) produce our much longed for lawn. In addition to this, the weeding and digging continued in the other parts of the sensory area and we will hopefully have a path to our willow obelisk which we created last year. The aim is to grow more sweet pea plants up the obelisk. We will have this site looking perfect eventually.
Lets sow a fine seed
We will have a lawn at some point!

Meanwhile, Chris and Matt took it in turns to cut up more wood from the trees which we took down. We will have a fantastically large supply of wood for our fire pit once all the logs have been cut!
