old trafford community garden

February 22, 2013

A little late; some pictures from the launch of the Old Trafford Community Garden on January 12th.

A brilliant example of a very simple idea that will make a huge difference to a community blighted by fly-tipping. I should know – the garden is situated at the end of the street I used to live on. Which once had six mattresses piled up in the alley. For weeks.

Over in nearby Moss Side, community gardens and allotments have done untold good. I’m convinced that the same movement is possible in OT.

Here’s a film made by the lovely Kerry of OT News – and of course, we’ll be tracking the garden’s progress on www.otnews.co.uk.
