Our passion at HCGC is underpinned by organic principles and promoting sustainability, horticulture and the environment, civic engagement and voluntary activity, urban gardening and food production, independent living, health and well-being. We also provide back to work and skills training and placements for longer-term unemployed people. We have been established for 10 years and now welcome over 5,000 visitors per annum, all of whom have access to free expert horticultural advice.
Working together for the common good of the community.
People are crucial to Hulme Community Garden Centre. Our mission is to bring the local community together through gardening. As a not-for-profit organisation we provide low-cost plants to the local community but we are foremost a volunteer and education hub promoting horticultural and sustainability issues to schools, colleges, the local community and wider public. We are a community resource in two of Manchester's most deprived areas, Hulme and Moss Side, providing a community garden space and running free workshops for the local community, a wide range of socially excluded groups (in particular people with learning disabilities and/or mental health problems), schools and voluntary organisations.
