Next drop-in gardening sessions: Monday 10 and Sunday 16 December from 2 to 4 pm.
We will have reduced sessions over the winter. No sessions from Monday 17 December, re-starting on Sunday 6 January. ‘Just gardening’ on Mondays on Monday 10 December and January 7, 14, 21 and 28 January. Back to normal, weather allowing, on Sunday 4 February 2019.
LittleNightingales - we are going to take a break over winter and re-start in the Spring. It is just too cold at the moment to sit around for long.
All welcome - even if you don't want to garden, we like to share hot (or cold) drinks and chat - 'Gardeners' Tea at 3' (flyer). Always keep an eye on the weather forecast and we will put updates here.
If there are a lot of small children running around, the adult volunteers can find it a bit stressful to work safely alongside them - we can't always watch the tools we are using - so please can you keep the children within your sight and attention.
About the garden...
We are in a corner of Nightingale Park, across the Hills Road from Addenbrooke's hospital and biomedical campus in South Cambridge (visit us).
This is a website written by regular garden volunteers, who work alongside, and under the direction of, City Council Streets and Open Spaces (SOS).
Funding the garden project: We have been quite successful making applications for funding for the larger changes to the garden, but are also supported by individual donations.
In May 2018, we started a new constituted group (with its own bank account), Nightingale Gardeners, details of which are on our gardening page. If you like what we do and would like to support the garden project contact us but we also have a kitty tin in the garden during our Sunday and Monday sessions and at garden events and this now goes to our new bank account for everyday expenses.
