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?

Windmill Christmas Fuddle

Thanks to everyone who came to our wonderful Christmas Fuddle today. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

We need to thank the Gateway to Nature folk who arrived at10am to help get the clay oven lit and the  polytunnel decorated. Well done to our main cooks - Paul for amazing spinach bajis, Joyce for her lentil burgers, Lynn and Karen for the biscuits, Tracey for her pumpkin brûlée and pear frangipani and last but not least, Shona for the pumpkin risotto. Thanks to everyone who chipped in to make a pizza too, and to Mark who did sterling work in keeping the oven cooking nicely (in fact better than ever before!). Mustn't forget everyone who took a turn keeping the rocket stove going too, under the guidance of Chris who is now an expert in handling this tempramental beast. Volunteers Mark, Guy and Lizzy (returning now her ankle is mended) all supported us wonderfully too, and it was great to get visits from friends old and new. We even learned how to say "cheeky" in French!

We wish everyone a great Christmas, and look forward to seeing you at the Lohri Festival in the New Year on Saturday 11th January from 1pm. NB our Wednesday and Thursday sessions will go on as usual! restarting on 8th and 9th January.
