Stockport Express - - News -

RES­I­DENTS are in­vited to find out about the food grow­ing in their area at an open day at Wood­bank Park Nurs­ery this week­end.

Run by The Kin­dling Trust, the nurs­ery is tucked away near the western edge of Wood­bank Memo­rial Park and is home to a ‘thriv­ing food and grow­ing hub and joins up com­mu­nity gar­den­ing with com­mer­cial or­ganic food pro­duc­tion’.

The nurs­ery is home to a col­lec­tion of or­gan­i­sa­tions, work­ing to­gether to cre­ate a lo­cal food hub, and the open day will pro­vide a chance for peo­ple to find out more about plans for the fu­ture of the site and ideas on how it can be used by the com­mu­nity.

Res­i­dents can also take part in ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing wood­work, bee keep­ing and com­mu­nity gar­den­ing ses­sions.

There will be tours of the site, home­made cakes, seed sow­ing, potato pick­ing and a snail race.

Cor­rina Low from The Kin­dling Trust said: “The nurs­ery is just a great place to be. It’s a mix­ture of na­ture, wildlife, com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties and food pro­duc­tion. We want the nurs­ery to be­come a place that lo­cal res­i­dents can en­joy and feel part of.”

The open day will take place on Satur­day (September 9) be­tween 9am and 2pm. Visit feed­ing­manch­ester.org. uk or call 818 8384 for more in­for­ma­tion.
