Hulme Community Garden Centre is on a mission to bring the local community together through gardening.
The Manchester-based centre was set up by three local residents 20 years ago, who all shared a vision of regenerating Hulme.
Hulme Community Garden Centre aims to provide an environment where people can learn, develop and share skills and information about horticulture, and wider environmental and sustainability issues.
Volunteers from across the area help out in the running of the garden centre – from maintaining the community gardens, woodworking, assisting with workshops, to getting involved at the community cafe.
Aside from selling plants and edibles to the public, the community led inner-city horticultural project also runs projects for people with mental health issues, as well as children.
Hulme Community Garden Centre grows using organic methods, is underpinned by principles of sustainability and seeks to build social capital in a greener city while promoting health and well-being.
