Matt is based at Kindling’s Community Food Hub in Woodbank Park in Stockport. You can find him working alongside others in the community garden, stooped over a screen putting together events and workshops, or developing the site into a space for growing, learning and coming together.
When not busy in the back office, he is out and about across the site, helping maintain its infrastructure and working on projects to transform the old council plant nursery into an exciting place for organic veg growing for Stockport, Greater Manchester and beyond.
Day-to-day, Matt might be in the garden, working with others to grow and maintain the space - whether that be building new beds, planting apple trees, or sowing seeds. Or in the office, putting together a range of land-based community events - including workshops on organic growing, bird walks, bird box building, wildlife gardening and food preservation. He might also get in touch about the latest Land Army days, or let you about progress at the Community Food Hub.
