Bring and share cream tea and cake in the garden. On Sundays 20 and 27 August from 2 to about 4pm - with a collection for Arthur Rank Hospice. On the 20th, we will also have an abundance stall and on 27th there will be a free Brass Band in the Park concert at 3pm. Poster.

Next drop-in gardening sessions: Sunday 20 and Monday 21 August, from 2 to 4 pm. 

  • Saturday 19th morning: forecast is dry for the next two days!

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.

15 August - there are lots of flowers in the garden at the moment - here annuals have self-seeded between perennial plants in this bed.

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).

Funding the garden project: 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.
