Here’s some more opportunities to get dirt under your fingernails and meet interesting people, all the while helping grow food for Manchester….
Hello Land Army!
The last few weeks have been a busy and exciting time for the Land Army and for the organic growers who we support. We have welcomed new volunteers, taken part in Bike Month Manchester, through cycling to Glebelands City Growers for a day of volunteering and helped Moss Brook Growers plant over 12,000 leeks in one day!
If you want to get involved over the next few weeks, we have lots of opportunities coming up:
Thursday 4th July – FarmStart at Abbey Leys Farm – a chance to help out the new FarmStart growers and see how they have doing on on their plots.
Friday 12th July – Moss Brook Growers, Glazebury
Wednesday 17th July – Moss Brook Growers, Glazebury – Moss Brook will be providing transport for this trip and you will need to bring your own lunch, for which they will provide £5 expenses for each volunteer.
Thursday 18th July – Glebelands City Growers, Sale
Friday 26th July – Moss Brook Growers
We will send out more information about the jobs we will be doing on each trip closer to the time, but if you have any questions in the meantime feel free to drop me an email.
We will meet at the Kindling office in Hulme (Old Birley Street) at 9.00am and get you back for 5/5.30pm. (The trip to Abbey Leys will be 9.30am – 4.30pm) Tools, gloves, lunch and refreshments will be provided. You just need to bring water to have with you in the field, clothes you don’t mind getting a bit mucky, and waterproofs. Also extra layers if it’s looking like cold weather, or sunscreen and a hat if it’s sunny.
If you are interested in any of these dates, drop me an email to book your place.
Hope to see lots of you over the next few weeks!
