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.

We are currently holding one public session a week on Fridays between 10am and 11am.   These are great taster sessions for anyone curious about what is involved in running an allotment.  We ask everyone to bring their own gloves,  wear suitable clothes for outdoors (no open-toed sandals please!) and remember to observe social distancing.  The allotment site has hand washing facilities and we can disinfect tool handles before and after use, if shared.  It’s a delight being outdoors with other people, in these tricky times.

If you’d like to see how the sessions work and possibly join us – contact Joan, the volunteer project coordinator.

Joan is an RHS Gold medal winning garden designer and a founding member of Incredible Edible Prestwich and District.  You can find out more about Joan and her company, Garden Design Manchester, here.

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.
