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?

Pumpkin Perfection!




Wow - what a day! Windmill Community Gardens was packed with happy folk today, carving pumpkins, tasting lovely grub made from it, playing pumpkin games, getting superb face-painting designs done by the lovely Claire Swain, listening to singing by the campfire from the talented Richard Jenkins, toasting marshmallows, exploring the spooky woods, pressing apples and just generally having a great time. And it looked amazing, with hordes of stunning pumpkins, especially when they were all lit up as the sun went down.

Thanks to everyone who helped make it such a special day - especially Kathy, Rachel, Robbie, Di, Derek, Hassan, Jeremy, Ash, Rowan, Mark and co, Chrystel, Jo and Merion. Thanks also to all those who carved show stopper pumpkins for us, and to all the carvers trying something new who did such a good job.

Here are a few of the best photos from the day, to give you a flavour, in case you didn't make it down here. Maybe we'll see you next year?

Family fun!
