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?

Wassail & Lohri Celebration 2020

Now that we've left 2019 behind, and darkest part of the Winter is past, we hope you'll help us to celebrate the returning life and light. As always, we’ll be mixing in elements of the Punjabi Lohri Festival with medieval traditions taken from Old Twelfth Night and other older ceremonies. On Saturday 18th January, from 1pm, there’ll be fires, drumming, fun and gorgeous food and we’ll make decorations to hang in the fruit trees as we wassail them (Wassailing is an old tradition to celebrate fruit trees to ensure a good crop in the coming year). 

We hope you can join us – please try to bring something to make noise with to help us wake up the trees! Also - if you could bring your own mug / bowl for drink / food and a spoon, that would help us no end as we don't have running water on site this time of year.
Free event but we always appreciate donations!
