Help create our community woodland

We have a great opportunity available to staff to work with our friends at Hulme Community Garden Centre creating our Community Woodland.

Two areas of useable woodland are being developed on our Birley site in Hulme. The areas are on either side of the site on Old Birley Street, the larger near the crossroads and the other next to our Orchard.

Our aim is to create and open educational resources for all to enjoy as well as a space to reconnect with nature, which could potentially provide health-giving wild foods and medicines for foraging. This also works with our commitment to creating areas, which enhance biodiversity and provide a sanctuary for wildlife.

We are offering teams the opportunity to join one of our afternoon sessions working together to clear, plant and maintain these ecological diverse areas. This is a great opportunity for teams or departments looking for team building and away day activities. With the guidance of colleagues at the HCGC you will learn about wild food plants, basic planting skills and local wildlife gardening whilst reconnecting with nature and meeting new people. We are also looking for individuals or teams who have experience in building outdoor seating for the area.

Session will be take place on Wednesdays from 1.30 – 3.30pm continuing from 20th April. If you are interested in taking part, please contact bigimpact@mmu.ac.uk.
