Manchester Urban Diggers C.I.C. are running a new volunteer programme at Platt Fields Market Garden in March.

The Bahary Kurdi programme will involve the creation of a dedicated garden for growing and cooking locally-grown and culturally appropriate Kurdish food at our market garden site.

Our chef Iman will be cooking a catered lunch each week for the volunteers also using produce from the garden.

  • The 12-week Summer programme is every Tuesday 10:30AM-4:30AM from Tuesday 21st June to Tuesday 6th September. (free lunch + hot/cold drinks)

The sessions will be delivered by experienced practitioners and cover a range of subjects, skills and practices related to the activities of the market garden, and to food production including: horticultural skills, garden design, development and management, craft and forestry skills, biodiversity and beekeeping.
