Welcome to Windmill Community Gardens Margate, a thriving community hub located in the heart of Thanet. Established in 2004, this hidden gem is composed of two one-acre sites (a community garden and a market garden) that were transformed from derelict wasteland allotments after local families requested “Somewhere safe to grow food with their children”.
Our community garden is a truly magical place, featuring a community growing space, accessible pathway, forest garden, poly tunnel, kitchen, wildlife habitats and much more. Our market garden is a chemical-free food growing space that includes no-dig beds, an apiary, vegetable, herb, and edible flower beds which supply the weekly vegetable bag scheme, our market stall, and local restaurants all year round.
Our vision is to improve the physical and mental health, wellbeing, and community cohesion of our visitors through educational and environmental activities as well as offering access to locally grown, chemical-free food.
