Welcome to the Secret Garden South of Bobber's Mill Bridge in Nottingham

Welcome to Windmill Community Gardens, home of the Climate Friendly Gardeners Project.

We are a group of local people, who are nurturing a wonderful community garden in the heart of the city. You'll find us just South of Bobbersmill Bridge, on the allotment site at the South end of Ascot Road. 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?

It's chilly!

This is what Windmill looked like today:

Walking in a Windmill wonderland...

Normally when it's this cold, you can keep nice and warm cutting down trees to start coppice and pollard stools and processing the wood. With the trees full of ice, the whole process is more than usually hazardous, so we decided to go for sorting out our seeds in a nice warm room instead!

We managed to find a room in the Groundwork office for a change of scene. Mark and Chris were joined by new volunteers Coryn and Jo, and we had a productive time re-organising, discarding the most out of date seeds and generally working out what we have got before we fall into the trap of buying what we already have in the cupboard.

Ex-seeding our expectations... (sorry!)

Hopefully we'll be back at Windmill next week (and the puns on the photos might be a bit better!)
