Sheridan Court Community Garden

Between March and September 2021 we facilitated the transformation of a social housing outdoor space in Monsall, Manchester into a communal garden to grow vegetables, herbs, and for socialising and neighbourhood activities. It became a space to provide residents with opportunities to reconnect with nature, food and the environment.

Our aim was to ‘heal - reimagine - renew systems’ through environmental workshops, including vegetable growing and climate-change education.

2 vegetable patches, a herb and flower bed,
