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 will provide a beacon of best practice for social prescription referrals from GPs to community gardens. It aims to improve health outcomes and reduce GP demand. Sow the City will use experience of working in hospital and healthcare settings to develop effective nature based interventions. There will be opportunity for local people to learn new skills, take part in physical exercise, get access to healthy and free food and meet new people. Furthermore, to boost employment prospects, Sow the City is providing AQA certificates for some of the courses. More information to follow in 2019.
