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:

We have now re-opened the community gardens to the public and we really look forward to welcoming people back on site.  We opened again on Tuesday August 11th, with revised opening hours and with a few changes / restrictions in place to keep everyone safe and for us to meet the Covid Secure guidelines.   We really thank everyone for their understanding and support.  

We are open 12-4 Tues-Fri and 10-4 on a Saturday; the building, poly tunnel, tandoor shelter and shed areas will be staff access only. We ask everyone to respect 2 metre distancing on site, we’ve got hand-washing facilities at the gate and we’ll keep track of numbers on site so we can ensure it doesn’t get too busy.

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

More updates will follow if things need to change –  and we really look forward to seeing you again, we’ve missed seeing you all. Thank you again for your support and understanding.

Special Events and Workshops

Now that we have reopened (as of August 11th) we are looking at holding a few small group activities really soon.   We won’t be able to hold our usual bigger community events for a while but we’ll look at lots of different ways we can share the site, share ideas and get people involved in activities.

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.
