Open Farm Sunday

Open Farm Sunday in the sunshine

Last Sunday we took part in the national Open Farm Sunday event where we opened our gates at Woodbank Community Food Hub to show the work that we do in trying to transform the local food system - it was an absolutely fantastic day, and we are so grateful to everyone for coming down and taking part in our activities.

Kindling a food revolution during the cost of living crisis

Protestor at Cost of Living Crisis Rally

We are entering one of the worst financial crises of the last few decades, with many people already feeling the squeeze of the cost of living crisis - and things are seeming as if they will only get worse in the coming months. While the cost of living goes up, the national insurance increase may mean that our take-home wage is also decreasing. UK households are facing yet more decisions on whether to heat their homes or eat dinner.

Veg Box People Are Recruiting!

Radishes from the veg bags

Our sister organisation, Veg Box People, are looking to recruit a passionate and hardworking person to join them for 30 hours a week, and help to grow Manchester’s food revolution.

The role itself will include lots of different jobs, from meeting the farmers and growers of the produce, to helping to pack the bags with the team, delivering them to the collection points, and helping out with general admin tasks.

New website to help us grow

New website screen grab

We are very proud of our new website, it has been a real labour of love over the last twelve months. We started with a blank piece of paper and began by asking how our very practical work could be enhanced and supported by a new website.

The result is a gorgeous looking website, with some very useful functions.

Book onto one of our community programme events.
