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 July 2021:

We have a wonderful outside space for exploring and plenty of seats outside.  The building, poly tunnel, tandoor shelter and shed areas are staff access only at the moment.   We have hand-washing facilities at the gate.

Although the rules around social distancing and group sizes are changing from July 19th, we want to ensure that all of our users, volunteers and staff continue to feel safe and secure here.  We will continue to be mindful of everyone’s needs and we aim to keep the community gardens as a welcoming, safe and accessible place for all.  We are incredibly grateful to everyone for their continued support and care.

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

Thank you again for your support and understanding.

Special Events and Workshops

We are delighted that we can now start to run some smaller activities and workshops; our bigger community events have to remain on hold for now and we will update here and on social media as soon as things change.

We have been adding some activity ideas to our You Tube channel on this link. 

Fresh Organic Produce Available

We have a year-round supply of organically grown vegetables, fruit and herbs for sale. Produce is picked for you while you wait so what you’re buying is always totally fresh. We also have a shop area where you can buy plants.

Feel free to pop into the gardens whenever we’re open to see what we have available.
