Next drop-in gardening sessions:  Sunday 22 and Monday 23 July from 2 to 4 pm. 

  • Sunday mid-morning: looks the usual dry, hot and sunny afternoon (Monday looks hotter). We have the second meeting of the gardeners group at 1pm today, before our usual session. All reasonably regular Sunday/Monday gardeners/tea drinkers are welcome - even if you are aren't yet a member (papers on the gardening webpage).

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.

New short video of the garden, its people and wildlife. Also: FunPalace video - on Sunday 8 October. Many thanks to Chris Rand for the expertise - we love them.

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.
