You can drop into the Community Gardens at any point during our opening hours to have a look around and to buy our organic produce.   You don’t have to buy anything or be taking part in a specific activity to visit, you’re really welcome to come and look around, there’s always lots to see.  We have lots of outside seats if you want to bring a drink / food – it’s a really calm place to unwind.

We have volunteering sessions at several points during the week and various different activities, groups and seasonal workshops as well as bigger community events (when we can do these).  Details are on our website as well as on our Facebook page.

What’s On At The Gardens…

Find out more about some of the services that we offer.

Family Sessions

We have weekly family sessions running, Saturdays 11 – 12.30.

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

Spring is a really busy time in the gardens; seeds are germinating in the polytunnel, young plants are being hardened off in the cold frames, some plants are ready to be planted into the growing circle and several crops are ready for harvest. Wildlife is all around the gardens with the pond full of frogs and birds singing in the hedgerows.

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.
