Vegtable growing at AMC GardensEstablished in 2001 Arkwright Meadows Community Garden is a thriving community project. The Gardens are a green oasis within walking distance of Nottingham City Centre.We are open to visitors throughout the week providing a place for relaxation and recreation. We grow and sell organically grown fruit and vegetables, provide volunteering, education and training, deliver a wealth of community activities and offer meeting room hire. AMC Gardens is run by local people and provides the Meadows with a well loved resource which reflects and celebrates this vibrant and diverse community.
