15 June 2017: if you like what we do and would like to support the garden, activities in the garden and also other community projects locally, the Queen Edith's Community Forum now has an online donation page. You could let us know by e-mail (contact us) if you'd like your donation to be used for a specific project.

Next drop-in gardening sessions: Sunday 25 and Monday 26 June, from 2 to 4 pm. 

  • Sunday 25 June morning: the weather forecast shows a likelihood of rain this afternoon from about 1 to 6pm, which is very welcome but might not be very attractive to gardeners. We will come down at 2 with waterproofs (unless it is raining very heavily) and see how things go. Monday looks dry.

All welcome - even if you don't want to garden, we like to share hot (or cold) drinks and chat - 'Gardeners' Tea at 3'. 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...

The Nightingale community garden project is turning a  dis-used bowling green into a biodiverse garden for everyone to enjoy.

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).
