Hospital Beds is a social enterprise project, creating growing spaces for the community, while providing opportunities for skills building and the personal development of service users at North Manchester General.
The Hospital Beds project builds on the success of Sow the City’s Green Minds project, funded by the Manchester Care and Health Commissioning Voluntary Sector.
The Hospital Beds project works with service users with mental health needs from North Manchester General Hospital. The service users will make use of the skills and experience in growing and construction gained through the Green Minds project to help to build and maintain growing spaces at other hospital sites, and in the local area. The project provides a range of benefits for the service users and the wider community. Participants develop life-long skills, create links to employment, make friends, socialise and improve their motivation levels and confidence. They are then able to share the health and therapeutic benefits of gardening and food growing to a wide range of new groups and communities. If you would like to build a new garden with the Hospital Beds team then get in touch.
