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?

Art Gallery @ Windmill

We have decided to hold an Art Exhibition this summer at Windmill, instead of the usual Feel Good Garden Party.  This is because we do not know if the Covid restrictions will be relaxed enough to allow  a lot of people to mix together and have massages etc.  We are looking for works of art from local amateur and professional artists.  They can be in any medium, but need to be tough enough to be exhibited outside.  We will have two gazebos and can put screens in these for photos and paintings, but otherwise the works will be exhibited outside around the gardens.  The work will not be for sale, but exhibitors can arrange sales after the exhibition.  We will have people on the site all the time as we have permission to camp overnight and volunteers will be watching the exhibits when we are open.

The exhibition will be on Saturday July 10th and Sunday July 11th.  We will be setting up on the Friday evening and Saturday morning.  There will be a children's workshop each morning from 11 to 12, then the exhibition will be open from 12 to 4pm. Entry is free. There will be other activities during the afternoon including a children's trail, music, workshops and pebble painting.  There will also be refreshments available.

If you would like to enter your work, or volunteer, please call Tracey on:

Many thanks to Nottingham City Council for funding the exhibition and Castle Cavendish for their enthusiasm in supporting us.
