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 May 2021:
As the covid restrictions start to gently ease we are really pleased that we can offer a few more activities and opportunities at the gardens (see below).
Our outside space is open for people to come along and explore and enjoy any time during our opening hours and you are welcome to bring a picnic and sit and enjoy the space. Our building, poly tunnel and tandoor shelter remain closed at the moment.
We are really pleased to be able to start up some of our activities again now – and we will also continue to share ideas on our social media and on You Tube.
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.
