At the Great Northern we want to make an oasis in our city. Our vision is for a wonderfully green public realm. We want to grow an abundance of edible and beautiful plants and a strong sense of community. We want our space to contribute to improving the quality of people’s lives who work and live in the city centre. We want to bring seasonality and the natural world into the heart of Manchester.
To help make this happen we have moved away from a standard grounds maintenance contract to employing our very own Community Gardener. He’s Stuart Bowman – happily obsessed with growing vegetable for his family and teaching others how to grow too. If you fancy it, Stuart would love to support you to grow edible and wildlife friendly plants on our site. He’s also on the lookout for community groups who’d like a patch of ground to call their own. Get in touch with Stuart on email@example.com
