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?

Grafting workshop

Great turn out for the grafting workshop today. 16 happy people, all trying to cut nice little jigsaw-links to make a root-stock link up with a grafted apple.

It takes a surprisingly long time to get the hang of the process, but it is very satisfying once you do, though the proof of that will presumably show up in many months time, when it will be clear if the grafted wood has taken!

Thanks to Leo from Summerwood Community Garden, who did such a great job and was a very patient teacher. Thanks also to Tracey for providing soup, and Birgitte for her delicious jam that went down so well with the bread, and to all the folk who turned up.

If anyone missed the grafting and would still like to have a go, they should visit Summerwood on the last Saturday in March, between 10am and 1pm.
