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?

The Future Factory brighten up the place

Thank you to the wonderful folk from Nottingham Trent University Future Factory, who worked so hard on repainting one of our beds on a blustery Wednesday. They also remained cheerful when the swirling wind kept blowing out the kelly kettle so warm drinks were delayed (we still think the kelly kettle is a wonderful device - next job - design a shelter!).

Ready to get started!

Being at Windmill,  the NTU team had to use elbow-grease to
take the paint off the beds, but they set to with gusto.

Base coat - non-toxic, low VOC paint, of course!

The start of the art work - going well.

Adding extra touches.

Andy and Lizzy get on with weeding the fire circle

Finished! Thanks to Angela, Hanna, Paul, Suborna, Siobhan
and Andy - well done all!

It was great to meet everyone, and we're delighted with the results of their efforts. Thanks to them also for giving the fire-circle and herb area a much-needed tidy up. And thanks to regular volunteer Lizzy for helping out as well, despite lack of sleep.
