What’s On At The Gardens…

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


Every Thursday we have Community Cycle Rides with a lesson at 10am followed by a ride at 11am.

We’ve got bikes you can borrow, experienced ride leaders and some lovely routes around the Meadows to enjoy. Rides are suitable for all levels.

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.

Growing Power

Growing Power is a series of 10 sessions enabling people to get outside in our beautiful garden. The aim is to help people develop good habits to stay well. It is ideal for people who are wanting to improve their well-being and help to counter stress and depression.

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.


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.
