12 September - there are lots of flowers in the garden at the moment - the sedums are just coming into flower for the first time: 'perfect for pollinators'. 

12 September - there are lots of flowers in the garden at the moment - the sedums are just coming into flower for the first time: 'perfect for pollinators'. 

Our collection for Arthur Rank Hospice on two Sundays in August raised £304.59. Thanks from the Hospice and us for your generosity - especially the tea and cake makers!

Special event coming soon: Queen Edith's Funpalace - Sunday 8 October from 10 to 4 (weather permitting)

Next drop-in gardening sessions:  Monday 18 and Sunday 24 September, from 2 to 4 pm. 

  • Monday 18 September - almost lunchtime: the forecast looks dry but 30% chance of rain around 4 (but then it said it would be dry yesterday - and it wasn't - we had thunder and lightning!). We will be there at 2 anyway...

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).

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.
