Kid’s Club

Every Thursday we run Kid’s Club on the gardens, offering creative and physical play activities in a fun and friendly atmosphere for 5-13 year olds.

In the Garden Now

If you come down to the gardens in summer you will find lots of different seasonal produce available – check the board by our gate for what’s available as this changes all the time in summer as certain produce becomes ripe and other crops finish. We have our big summer community event in July which is full of live music, food and activities. Throughout the summer anyone is welcome to pop in with a picnic during our opening hours – the gardens are here as a place to relax, be inspired, find peace and calm and to connect with nature; we have lots of seats and picnic tables.

Tandoor and Cob Oven

Our traditional tandoor oven is housed within our community built strawbale building. The tandoor is open for local people to come and make their breads each week.

We have also recently built a cob (clay) pizza oven and as well as using this for our own events it can be made available for private hire.

Venue Hire

Our lovely garden room as well as our community garden and polytunnel make a great alternative venue for meetings, training days, workshops or exercise classes.


Hundreds of people volunteer at AMC Gardens each year. We are run by a committee of management volunteers who are elected by our local members. As well as our regular gardening volunteers, we have publicity volunteers and events volunteers. From performing at shows, to running a raffle or feeding the hens, volunteers have a tremendous variety of roles.
