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?

Spring celebrations at Windmill

It was great to celebrate the coming of Spring at Windmill this Wednesday. We hosted Bilborough Family Centre to help them discover the joys of the season. The volunteers came out in force to help families to enjoy lots of different activities.

In the orchard, Carrie helped our visitors to make nests and art using natural materials, as well as advising what to do if you find a chick out of the nest.

Art in the orchard

The nests were works of art.

In the polytunnel, Chris and Mark organised planting peas in gutters and making bird feeders out of plastic bottles.

The clay oven was running, with Tracey and Matt helping everyone to make "bunny buns" which were   delicious - with cheese or butter and our own home-made jam.

First wash your hands - the tip tap worked well.

Pete and Andrew helped everyone to find hidden egg pictures with activity ideas to try on the back of them and later hid egg tokens to swap for chocolate!
