We further local communities’ access to healthy food produced organically. We do this by growing and sourcing organic, local and seasonal veg; and sharing knowledge about market gardening.
What we do
Reddy Lane Market Garden is going into it’s sixth growing season, and is taking on a new growing site due to unexpectedly losing their lease in 2017. There is information about it in the posts on the blog page.
Lindsay started Reddy Lane Market Garden, She runs the stall at Levenshulme Market and manages the veg box scheme. She has 11 years veg growing experience, including a two year full time Organic Horticulture course in Ireland. She worked for various environmental organisations before settling on becoming an organic grower, including spending four formative years as the food writer at Ethical Consumer magazine.
George is retired, but has 25 years experience as a plumber. Going into his sixth year with Reddy Lane, he spends between 2 and 3 days a week growing veg during the growing season.
We have a steering group of another four people, who help with the practicalities on the land, and steer the course as we transition into the type of social enterprise that wants to use their profits and assets for the public good.
