Sedgley Project, Albert Avenue Allotments

Small family friendly allotment garden for the Sedgley Park Community

Roughly twice weekly - but participants can join us less frequently. Contact Joan at joan@garden-design-manchester.co.uk

162 Albert Avenue, M25 0HF

About the project

We run family friendly sessions at our community plot on Albert Avenue, Sedgley Park, Prestwich.   Group members find this an ideal opportunity to learn about tending a vegetable garden or allotment – for free.

Contact Joan, the project manager, if you are interesting in joining the gardening group and to arrange access to the allotment site.

There are two sessions per week – most members can only make 1 day, which is fine. We share information by Whatsapp and text.  The sessions are:

Tuesday 2.00 – 3.00pm

Friday 10.30 – 11.30 am

Joan is an RHS Gold medal winning garden designer and has been involved with our St Mary’s Park project since 2010.  You can find out more about Joan and her company, Garden Design Manchester, here.

We had a great summer last year (2018)- and lots of people involved in the project. A couple of us kept the allotment going through the winter and now we are gearing up once again for members of the public to join the group and the fun.

The allotment gardening sessions will run through 2019 and beyond and will be a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in learning how to grow their own vegetables or fruit.  They are open to anyone in the local community and you’ll have access to your very own garden designer!

Allotments sites are fabulous pockets of peaceful horticulture in our urban landscape.  They have been created and nurtured over the years by their tenants.  It a wonderful privilege to have access to Albert Avenue Allotments. Being involved in a community allotment promises to be an enriching experience. with the added advantage of shared vegetables and fruit with minimal food miles.

Please be aware that access to the allotment site is possible by appointment only and visitors to, or members of, the gardening group must always be accompanied by Joan, the named tenant of our community plot.
