Growing Manchester Programme – Open Now!
Need support to help you and your project grow your own healthy, fresh and sustainable food? Have access to some land for food growing but not sure where to start? The 'Growing Manchester' programme could be just what you are looking for to help you and your project get started, or take your project to the next level!
The Food Futures 'Growing Manchester' programme supports new and existing community food growing projects to ensure that local people with an enthusiasm to grow can access the training and support their project needs to succeed. We already support over 65 Manchester based growing projects and we are excited to open the Growing Manchester programme to invite TEN new groups to tap into the available expertise. Groups will be welcomed onto the programme to join us in our autumn and winter course programme and crucially, to capitalise on the community development support to plan ahead for the next growing season.
'Sow the City' will be working with successful groups to manage and deliver our horticultural and environmental training, bringing the expertise to help your group at every stage in your vision to grow food and live sustainably.
