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?

Herbie Goes To Town at Windmill!


What a fantastic day at Windmill Community Gardens! We made the most of the lovely weather and had 28 volunteers and visitors on site!

The aims for the day were to enjoy the sunshine, finish clearing all the herb beds to get rid of the weeds and the dreaded horse-radish, work with Sarah from Bio Opal to do a survey of Windmill's worm population and the pH of our soil and to enjoy some good food to go with the good company. We even had music supplied by Ray with a little help from Trevor.

We got a huge amount done. Thanks to everyone for their hard work, especially Nature in Mind, Rosco and Michael for doing such great work on the revamped herb beds and the new annual wildflower bed. And we have to applaud the amazing Mo for arriving with a pushchair full of goodies for lunch. Wonderful!

We reckon our friends here from Nature in Mind look like a
rock group in this one. Herbie & the Herbalists maybe?
