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.

Windmill Spring Workshop Zooms to Lift the Spirits


Our Spring workshops are on Zoom this year. We're aiming to help you to try some craft and mindfulness activities - things that will bring you fun and good feelings. See below for what you'll need for each activity and how to book a place on the Zoom. Each Zoom will have 8 places, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Session 1 - 24th February, 10.30am - How to turn a tin can into a beautiful lantern.

You'll need an empty tin can, a small hammer, a nail and a hand-towel for this one! If you haven't got any of those resources, we can help you get hold of them. There is a bit of preparation - you'll need to fill the can with water, and put it in the freezer at least 2 days before the zoom, so it has chance to freeze solid. The ice then stops the can from getting squashed as you use the nail to tap holes into it. If you can't take part but would just like to watch, let us know.

Send us a cooment to book your place, and we'll send you the Zoom link for the session.

Session 2 - 27th February, 10.30am - Design a daily wellbeing ritual

What is a Ritual? Why do we need them and benefit from them? How can they help us to get through difficult times or celebrate good times or achievements? Come along to design your own daily wellbeing ritual. It might just change your life for the better.

You may not finish your design completely in the zoom session but hopefully you will be inspired and on the way.

Please bring:

a note pad and pen,  

a tea light and something to light it with

a shallow jam jar to put your tea light in when its lit.   

Also bring your open mind. Lets get feeling a little bit better each day and see how we go from there!

Booking three days in advance essential - Just comment below that you'd like a spot.
