Earth Day in Didsbury, and eco-cookery to come!

Amanda from Didsbury Dinners has something to share…

Many thanks to everyone who supported Didsbury Dinners’ Earth Day celebrations (22 April). We marked the day at our Barlow Moor Road community garden by planting an array of donated seeds, including various varieties of beans and peas, and soft fruits, such as strawberries, redcurrants, gooseberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackcurrants. Roll on harvest time! You can view fun, foot-tapping videos of our efforts here!
Thanks to all of the volunteers who helped out: it was great to see so many new faces. We’ll continue to work on the garden for a while yet; most Saturdays from 12-4pm. Just email usto get involved.

Thanks also to everyone who contributed to our photo montage, helping to capture people’s imaginations with what we can all grow at home, with minimal effort. If you’ve not got around to sending yours yet, please email them to
Finally, don’t forget that the first meeting of our eco-cookery planning group is this Thursday, 26 April, 6.30–8pm at West Didsbury Sure Start Centre, Barlow Moor Road. We aim to teach another 100+ people how to cook, for free, and we’d love you to get involved!
