Wythenshawe Park walled garden & farm
This project will develop a hub for community growing, training and skills development through the Horticulture Centre and growing sites in Wythenshawe Walled Garden. There is also potential to develop a social enterprise ‘box scheme’ to supply residents with local fruit and vegetables.
- Real Food Wythenshawe has a classroom at Wythenshawe Park and is running numerous workshops, supporting local residents with everything they need to know about growing, cooking and eating sustainably.
- The team has worked alongside the community farm to re-launch the shop, stocking local fruit and vegetables, Wythenshawe honey, rosehip syrup and award-winning Wythenshawe sausages. In the future the shop will be a distribution point for produce grown in the Walled Garden and Horticulture Centre.
- Real Food Volunteers have been involved with running the farm shop, supporting growing in the walled garden and with delivering workshops.
