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.

Lanterns for Lohri

Anyone for willow lanterns?

We had a great session today with the lovely folk from Gateway to Nature, who came to help us create really impressive lanterns, ready for the Lohri festival in January.

The basic design is made from 2 willow triangular pyramids, so it's easier than it looks.

Masking tape is enough to stick the
corners together
If you fancy making one yourself, Tracey can show you how. Give us a call and she can arrange a workshop for you.

Many thanks to the volunteers who did a brilliant job with the last of the winter bed preparation, and to the DISO boys who worked with Maxine to de-weed the bark paths and mulch all the orchard trees.
