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?

Season's Greetings from Windmill Community Gardens

It's getting close to Christmas and Windmill Community Gardens are about to go into our final week before our Winter break. We will be celebrating the season with our annual Festive Fuddle on Thursday. All welcome - please bring some food to share and join us any time between 12noon and 2pm. We'll also be holding a Wreath-making workshop on Saturday from 10.30am until 12.30pm, with materials and tools provided, as well as a festive snack.

After that, we'll be closed until Monday 6th January, with our first event, our Wassailing and Lohri celebration on Saturday 18th January from 1pm until 3pm.

We hope that you have a wonderful Christmas / Solstice or any other festival you celebrate at this time of year, and we look forward to seeing you soon! Here's a poem by our resident bard Stewart to celebrate the season.

Christmas Time

Christmas is a time which we love and adore. 
When we are happy, excited and so much more. 
It is time when certain magic can all be believed, 
When special gifts are both sent and received.

It is a time for families to all get together, 
And be merry and joyful - whatever the weather. 
It is time to put all quarrels aside, 
To have fun and laughter with no need to hide.

It is a time for us all to be cheerful and jolly, 
And maybe quite silly and full of folly. 
It is time to understand and a time to be kind. 
It is a time to relax and a time to unwind.

It is a time to hear all the carollers sing, 
And everywhere goodwill to all people bring. 
Is it time to hope for the soft thick snow? 
Will it fall this year? Who can know?

It is a time to tuck into a fabulous feast, 
Then as we indulge, all talk may be ceased. 
It is a time to excuse one for having a drink. 
Then have another as there's no need to think.

And as this festive time comes to an end, 
Another year is coming, to which we must attend. 
Then to the future we must all now look. 
To begin a new chapter of our new book.
