Sow the City is working with Northern Health GPPO Ltd and 4CT to develop a new wellbeing garden in Beswick, East Manchester. The project is commissioned by Manchester Health and Care Commissioning.
The project is taking place at the Grange Community Centre and will provide opportunity for community groups that use the centre and local people to benefit from therapeutic horticulture sessions.
The project aims to improve health outcomes and reduce GP demand in the Beswick areas. Sow the City will use experience of working in hospital and healthcare settings to develop effective nature based interventions. Sow the City have redeveloped the outdoor space, to create an easily accessible site for growing - including raised beds using re-purposed intermediate bulk containers, and hard surfaced paths suitable for wheelchair use. We have provided growing workshops for local people, as well as providing sessions for specific users of the Grange Community Resource Centre e.g. Twinkle Star Pre-school and Being There, a charity supporting clients with life limiting illnesses.

a massive thanks for all the work you did on our allotment project; [You] really won the hearts of the group. I’ve had very positive feedback from the participants who would love to do the same again next year.
