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 2 public sessions a week on Tuesdays (2pm to 3pm) and Fridays (10am to 11am). These are great taster sessions for anyone curious about what is involved in running an allotment. We ask everyone to wear suitable clothes for outdoors (no open-toed sandals please!).
The allotment site has a toilet and hand washing facilities.
If you’d like to see how the sessions work and possibly join us – contact Joan, the volunteer project coordinator.

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.
