Patch is a neighbourhood kitchen garden where you can get involved in growing, nurturing and making things for free.

Organised in collaboration with Manchester Urban Diggers, this is a six week series of free to attend activities which cover skills such as preparing ground for planting to composting for beginners. See the Patch NOMA website.
