Welcome to Arkwright Meadows Community Gardens

In the HEART of the Meadows

Established 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.

The Gardens site and buildings are fully wheelchair accessible.

Covid 19 update:

Update as of January 2021: 

During this third lockdown period we are able to keep much of the site open for people to visit as part of their local daily exercise and we know how vital it is to have access to time in nature and to be in uplifting outside spaces.  Most of our outside space is open but the building, poly tunnel and tandoor shelter are closed and the activity sessions we run are halted during this period – but we will be sharing lots of ideas on our social media and on You Tube.

We are open 12-4 Tues-Fri and 10-4 on a Saturday.   We ask everyone to follow the government rules around distancing and only being with your household / bubble.  There are hand-washing facilities at our gate and we have quite a lot of space here for you to explore.  

We will also continue to offer sales by phone order and arranged collection slots.

More updates will follow if things need to change – thank you again for your support and understanding.
