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?

Local Food looks for Local Food!



First pick - yellow pattypan squash

During the school visit from Robert Shaw's today, we also helped out with a Local Food "safari" session being run at the wonderful Arkwright Meadows Community Garden. Local Food are our main sponsors, so we were delighted that they could come and see how we are getting on.

AMC did all the hard part, we just helped a group of visiting folk from the Local Food project to harvest a range of fruit and vegetables from our allotment. These were then taken back to Arkwright Meadows, and combined with the produce gathered by other groups who had travelled to other growing projects around Nottingham.

Can you provide a range of tomatoes? Yep!

The group seemed please with the harvest they managed to take with them, and we hear that the food they produced was delicious.

The group with their haul.
