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?

Please Help Us!

Please, please vote for us in the Aviva Community Fund! Anyone can vote, from anywhere in the world, and Windmill Community Gardens really needs funds to create a warm and dry space for activities in Winter and bad weather. If you haven't yet voted for us in the Aviva Fund vote, please, please do! And if you can persuade friends and relatives to help, that would be even better!

We need as many votes as possible, not just 1000, so don't be put off and please vote before Monday!

Here's the LINK!

Look forward to seeing you, but book soon, as the places are already going fast!

A little present from one of our volunteers
