At Windmill Community Gardens Margate, we’re thrilled to introduce Membership opportunities to support our beautiful garden space. Over the years, our wonderful visitors have often asked how they can contribute, and offering memberships felt like the perfect way to receive support.

By joining as a member on a monthly or annual basis, you’re directly helping us maintain and enhance our gardens for the community to enjoy. We have set up different tiers of membership to allow everyone the opportunity to contribute to the gardens.

Your support means the world to us, and we can’t wait to welcome you as a Windmill Member.

Spring Peas Membership

With your generous support we can continue to deliver our community services with more certainty for our community.

For being a Spring Pea Friend of Windmill, you’ll receive the following benefits: 

  1. Our Windmill Supporter enamel pin 
  2. An invite to a special annual event for our supporters and volunteers.
  3. Stay connected with the latest news, updates, and gardening tips through our informative quarterly Members’ newsletter.
  4. Have a voice in decision-making processes by being eligible to participate in annual general meetings and having your say on garden projects, and other important matters
  5. And our heartfelt thanks for supporting us in this way

Summer Salad Membership

£120 per year or £10 per month

Thank you for being a Summer Salad friend!

Our sites are in near constant need of repair; exposure to the elements, our structures undergo a lot of stress and damage over the years. We replaced both of our polytunnels at the beginning of 2023, which cost an astounding £8000 to replace just the skin. Leaky roofs, damage to our toilet, and doors that struggle to open, there is an extensive list of projects that need completing on a regular basis, and your support will go a long way to helping us achieve these goals. 

As a Summer Salad Member, you will receive all the benefits of our Spring Pea membership plus the following:

  1. A large jar of your chosen produce, such as honey, chutney, or sweet preserved figs. (This is dependent on what is available when you choose to redeem.)
  2. Priority access to all of our ticketed events across the year before they are made available to the public. (We will run 4 main events throughout; a Spring Fair, a Summer Fair, a Pumpkin Party and a Christmas Fair.)
  3. Our heartfelt thanks!

Autumn Squash Membership

£240 per year or £20 per month

Thank you for becoming an Autumn Squash Friend!

First of all, thank you. This is an astounding show of generosity and we greatly appreciate it. We have a lot of ideas that we would like to implement; including building new structures and improving existing ones so that we can offer indoor space to the community, especially in the winter. We’d like to upgrade our solar power capacity so that we can offer more options for the people who use our site, and continue to mitigate our environmental impact. 

This level of support will greatly increase our ability to fully realise our vision for the community and us as a charity. 

For being an Autumn Squash Friend of Windmill, you will receive all the benefits of both the Spring Pea and Summer Salad memberships, as well as the following:

  1. A printed copy of our annual report showcasing the work you’ve helped us achieve over the year.
  2. A veg bag when you sign up full of freshly harvested treats from the gardens.
  3. Our heartfelt thanks!
