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?

Windmill Celebrates the Apple Harvest this Saturday

Windmill Community Gardens is gearing up for our Apple Harvest Celebration on Saturday 29th September.

There will be fun for all the family, with activities featured on the day including apple tasting, apple pressing, tasting of locally grown food, chainsaw carving demonstrations and many traditional games like apple bobbing.

East Markham Heritage Orchard have provided lots of different apples to taste.

The event starts at 11am and runs until 3pm. No booking is required just turn up on the day and celebrate the apple harvest with the rest of the community.

There will also be the opportunity for gardeners to show off any fruit and veg they have grown this year or dishes they made from their fresh produce, including but not limited to savories, sweet cakes and preserves.

Why not enter some of your harvest - you might win a prize!

Come and taste the delicious treats and then see who earns the winning prizes.
You can “pip” the competition to prizes by entering your own home grown fruit and veg in a number of categories including best display of home grown produce, heaviest marrow or strangest looking fruit or veg! We’ll also be judging the best tasting jam and chutney as well as deciding which of the competing homemade dishes are the best!

See you there!
