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?

Lovely things!

We're lucky to have some very talented volunteers at Windmill. One is our resident poet, Stuart and another is Matt, who has become a talented photographer, and is currently in his second year of photography at Nottingham College. I thought Stuart's latest poem and a few of Matt's pictures would work well together, so hopefully you'll agree!

Nature, by Stuart Vanner

The prettiest pictures of beauty are formed by our nature's own.
Look out, for it is free and it is always alone.
We may see behind a sky that's blue and bold
Shines glorious globe of greatest gold.
And the winds which swirl in a wavy path
Blow tears of heaven, creating nature's bath.
Then may see the flowers and feel the breeze.
Watch and hear birds chirping in the trees.
And since our feelings are shaped by the weather
Reaching the Summer's day mood must be our greatest endeavour.

Our photo exhibition at the Central Library has just finished, but we'll be moving it to Radford-Lenton Library soon, and then hopefully, to Doctor's Orders.
