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

If you come down to the Gardens in the winter you can expect to find us busy with maintenance jobs around the whole site,  we start seed sowing indoors from January  and garlic, onions, broad beans and field beans have all been sewn outdoors.   Most of the outdoor beds have been mulched with compost and manure and covered for the winter, ready to plant up in spring. Kale and spinach are still growing and available to buy, as well as lots of fresh herbs and jam.

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.
