Cambridge Wild's (very informal) July festival of local wildspaces has started. We had four meet-ups in the community garden (Friday 7, Saturday 8 and Sunday 9: poster) and at Wulfstan Way on 15 July. Friends of Rock Road Library are also doing something wild for kids on Saturday 29 July.

Next drop-in gardening sessions: Sunday 30 and Monday 31 July, from 2 to 4 pm. 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.

7 June 2017: the edges of our pond were fluffy with wildflowers... 9 July: some of the flowers are faded now but the garden is now full of insects enjoying their seedheads.

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.
