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.

You can drop into the Community Gardens anytime during our opening hours – everyone is welcome to come in, have a look around, bring a picnic (we’ve got lots of chairs outside) and explore.   We sell our fresh organic produce all year round and have a selection of different seasonal produce on offer (produce changes all the time depending on what’s ripe and available – we keep a blackboard by the gate with updated information on of what’s on sale).

Our Warm Hub is up and running too – there’s cosy chairs in the foyer inside the building at the gardens and you are welcome to drop in, make yourself a warm drink and sit for a while.   Pop in anytime during our opening hours.
