Growing Spaces

This pop up allotment grew from an idea to inspire learning and discovery through urban growing , part of the Living Worlds exhibition of Natural History at Manchester Museum – now into its third year as a learning and discovery resource popular with schools, playgroups, food and environmental groups.

The quad at the Michael Smith Building at Manchester University’s Faculty of Life Sciences was transformed into a place to sit, eat, chat, think, work – an inspiring environment to promote fresh ideas with edible beds, bee friendly planting, native hedging and a pond.
