The Lost Plot are having a Roots and Shoots party on Sunday 11th April from 1pm onwards to celebrate Spring and the start of a new growing season.
Come along and join in some seed planting, do a bit of digging or just relax in the sunshine.
Beth Morgan, The Lost Plot's newly appointed Community Engagement Coordinator said:
"It'll be a great family day. We'll provide refreshments, you can plant up a cut-and-come-again salad window box and there'll be a windmill-making workshop for younger children. It's a great chance to share what we're doing down on the allotment and hopefully encourage people either to come along and volunteer themselves or think about growing some of their own food at home."
"We're just starting to plan what should be going where on the site, so if you come down to the party you can be in at the start of this year's planting."
Beth will be working one day a week for The Lost Plot, thanks to a grant from Manchester City Council's Carbon Innovation Fund.
"It'll be working with local people to find out what they'd like to do in terms of growing their own food; we'll be organising free workshops on planting, soil improvement, composting, health eating etc. and I'd really like to hear from anyone who'd like a bit of help and advice on getting started."
Anyone wanting to attend the Roots and Shoots party should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
