Here are some of the ways we can help:
Isobel Howard, Miles Platting Regeneration Officer, Adactus Housing
Sow the City gave our residents, who were involved in the Chippenham Road Community Garden, the skills and expertise to feel confident in starting to grow their own produce.
Sow the City has helped set up and develop over 40 community gardens in and around Manchester. We work with community groups, local authorities and housing providers to take a project from a piece of vacant land to a thriving community garden project. Our experienced team provide workshops and professional advice on every aspect of the project.
We believe that everyone should have access to a community garden where they can grow their own food and eat the produce. What other public service can bring people together, and provide educational opportunities, physical activity, stress reduction, and locally sourced fresh food? Community gardens are great for society and the environment and cost less than a family car to start!

We will consult with your community group to determine what sort of garden project would suit you. We will help establish any necessary group structures and constitutions to help in the successful management of project. We will conduct soil tests and vegetation surveys to see what will grow best. We will develop a site plan so that you know what will be planted where. We will help with legal issues such as land leases and health and safety procedures. If you need some extra support, we will help with funding applications for your project. Our volunteers are on standby to come and help out as required. We will help spread the word and promote the project to the wider community. We will monitor and evaluate the progress of your project so that you can keep track of your successes and where you could improve.
