This via Kindling Trust, who are co-ordinating volunteers to help organic farms grow food for Manchester. You get a warm inner glow, some good exercise and probably some new friends; the farms get your labour. Seems radically sensible, frankly…
We’ve got another land army date for you next week – on Wednesday 17th April. We’re going to Moss Brook Growers (out in Glazebury), and it would be great if you could join us!
We’ll meet in Hulme (at the Kindling office on old Birley Street) at the normal time of 9.30 and get you back for about 5/5.30pm.
The idea is to have a bit of a ‘spring clean’ at Moss Brook to get ready for the new growing season. Tasks could include reorganising the shed, do a bit of tool maintenance, and hopefully helping Moss Brook Growers with their little orchard, some hedge planting/repairs, and, as ever, the chance to warm up by pulling out a few docks!
We’ll provide the lunch and refreshments (and tools and gloves), you just need to bring a bottle of water to have with you in the field, come dressed for the job (wellies/sturdy boots, layers to keep you warm, waterproofs just in case – and generally clothes that you don’t mind getting a bid muddy), and come ready for a good satisfying day’s work!
If you are interested in coming along please drop me an email and I’ll email you back to confirm your place.
Many thanks and we look forward to hearing from you.
