Philips Park Incredible Forest Garden

A new forest garden just behind the barn at Philips Park.

Weekly on a Saturday

Philips Park, Prestwich, Whitefield, M45 7QJ

About the project

January 2018: After the success for the last 7 years of Prestwich Clough Forest Garden we are embarking on a second one at Philips Park. An edible woodland will emerge in an area which was opened out after an old beech tree fell down.

We will be planting fruit and nut trees, fruit bushes, herbs and other perennial edible and useful plants, mimicking a young woodland.

You’ll also find the remains of an old house on the site, which is being excavated by the local archaeological society.

We meet weekly on a Saturday – check events for the next meet up.
