Food on the Grow! at New Horizons in Wythenshawe created welcoming gardening and food growing areas around the perimeter of St Andrew’s church. Participants chose to garden for a half- or full day, or as long as they felt they could.
As well as battling lots of mares tail (!), participants pruned fruit trees, sowed and planted-out veg, propagated plants through cuttings, pressed apples and beetroot to make fresh juice, plus created a colourful welcome through planting an array of bedding plants in front of the New Horizons building.
When produce was harvested, cooking sessions used the veg grown as a way of demonstrating how to make healthy, tasty, and affordable meals.
