What’s On At The Gardens…

Find out more about some of the services that we offer.

Cycling

Our regular sessions with Ridewise halt during the winter and will continue again in March 2019, when there will be a series of regular sessions here with Ridewise, including guided bike rides, cycle maintenance, build a bike sessions and more.

Kid’s Club

Every Thursday we run Kid’s Club on the gardens, offering creative and physical play activities in a fun and friendly atmosphere for 5-13 year olds.

In the Garden Now

Most of our activity in this winter month is repairs and maintenance for the spring and summer ahead.

Tandoor and Cob Oven

Our traditional tandoor oven is housed within our community built strawbale building. The tandoor is open for local people to come and make their breads each week.

We have also recently built a cob (clay) pizza oven and as well as using this for our own events it can be made available for private hire.

Venue Hire

Our lovely garden room as well as our community garden and polytunnel make a great alternative venue for meetings, training days, workshops or exercise classes.

Volunteering

Hundreds of people volunteer at AMC Gardens each year. We are run by a committee of management volunteers who are elected by our local members. As well as our regular gardening volunteers, we have publicity volunteers and events volunteers. From performing at shows, to running a raffle or feeding the hens, volunteers have a tremendous variety of roles.
