The steering group and me looking a bit worse for wear as we celebrate hitting our crowdfund target. We actually hadn’t opened the bubbly at this point!

We raised £7938 with our #growlocal crowdfund. YAY!!!! Big thank you to the 231 people who have supported us. A full list of our supporters and some images from the campaign is here.

This will buy a new commercial scale polytunnel, re-locate the market garden and enable us to run volunteer sessions for the local community. It is a great opportunity to increase the amount of pesticide free veg grown and consumed in Greater Manchester, and create a beautiful garden where research into best practice growing techniques can occur.

This will be in a different location than we originally wanted, but we think we can still do it. There is a blog post about this here.
