15 November: not so many flowers in the garden now - but we have a new bench and lots of other winter projects to keep us busy.

Next drop-in gardening sessions: Sunday 26 and Monday 27 November from 2 to 4 pm (it gets dark early now - we lock up at about 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.

No gardening sessions: Sunday 24 and Monday 25 December - but we will have a Bring-and-share Boxing Day tea on Tuesday 26 from 2 to 4, weather allowing.

New short video of the garden, its people and wildlife. Also: FunPalace video - on Sunday 8 October.

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.
