This weekend I moved up to Manchester. Lucy and I have a week of getting sorted and exploring the city before the work begins on our Part II course. Today we went for shop and came across the Hulme Community Garden Centre not far at all from where we live. The enthusiastic people there gave us some nasturtium and calendula seeds and a choice of fruit and veg for a small donation. It seems like a great community hub in an area that has been regenerated in recent years but, at first glance, lacks some personality. They do courses and encourage volunteers so with my current enthusiasm with urban agriculture it could be something great to be involved with.
