A garden for Platt Hall
This year sees the start of a new project working with the Friends of Platt Fields and local health and wellbeing partners to turn the grounds surrounding the Hall into a welcoming outdoor space and garden. Not-for-profit social enterprise Manchester Urban Diggers, who also run the Platt Fields Market Garden, have worked with staff at the Hall, taking inspiration from the collections for a series of themed spaces that will brighten this north east corner of Platt Fields Park and provide the Hall with a new space for outdoor workshops and activities. It's one of several community-led ideas for improving facilities on the north side of the park.
Tuesday Garden volunteer sessions 11 - 4pm
Weekly volunteer sessions open to anyone who lives or works in Rusholme, Fallowfield or Moss Side. From week to week the jobs will change with the time and the seasons. We are clearing areas, planting, weeding, digging and chatting. Spend time with gardener Dan and Meg from Platt Hall and garden alongside people from the area. We welcome beginner and experienced gardeners, learning together.
Come along and meet Dan and Meg to see what is happening before you decide if it is for you.

This is a long-term collaborative project that will develop over time as resources allow. For now though, you can see the plans in the images below or download a pdf copy of the plan.
