Wythenshawe Park Horticultural Centre

Darren recently found out about Real Food Wythenshawe through his volunteer work with a local food bank. As a father of five children, Darren is interested in providing his family with healthy food. He has been learning about growing vegetables, and planting in the historic walled garden. This has prompted Darren to start growing at home as well.

“I’ll be putting in two raised beds (provided by Real Food Wythenshawe) to grow food for my family. My daughter is really interested in helping me with the plants. She planted herbs with me the other day. It’s great that Real Food can help me get started. I know I can get all the basics: raised beds, compost and plants which I’ve had a hand in growing from seed”
