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?

Potions and Lotions Herbal Workshop

Just back from a really great workshop at Windmill with the wonderful Katherine Bellchambers - local Medical Herbalist who visited us in the Summer and was so popular, we asked her back!

Last time, she showed us all the plants with herbal possibilities that were growing on the plot, but this time, she helped us to make a variety of potions and lotions.

The polytunnel now smells amazing, and lots of happy people have now left clutching the various great balms, rubs and teas they made up. We've also had some great social media feedback - the wonders of technology!

We already have ideas for more herbal work, so watch out for updates!
