Volunteer opportunity: Help grow organic #food for#Manchester 14th and 21st March @kindlingtrust

This comes to us from Kindling Trust.

Hello Land Armiers! (1)

We have two more Land Army dates for your diary – this time we’re going to Glebelands City Growers in Sale on Thursdays the 14th and 21st March.

We’ll meet in Hulme at the normal time of 9.30am and get you back for about 5.30pm.

SAM_0202There are two jobs that it would be great to get done. One is to resurface the areas around the polytunnels with mypex covering (a weed suppressant sheet), and the second is to renovate (digging, weeding, pruning, cutting, clearing etc.)an area that they want to use for experimenting with new crops. Then if there is the time/energy left over there is also maintenance of the rhubarb bed and other general digging over of beds.

SAM_0220Just as an advance warning the growers say that all these jobs would ideally be done in dry conditions so this trip is slightly weather dependent…but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it!

We’ll provide the lunch and refreshments (and tools and gloves), you just need to come dressed for the job (wellies or sturdy boots, layers that you don’t mind getting a bid muddy and a bottle of water to have with you in the field), and ready for a good satisfying days work!

If you are interested in either of these dates please drop me an email and I’ll email you back to confirm your place.

Many thanks,
