Bite - Allotment Growing Sessions

Bite aims to promote growing to improve mental health. Getting out in the open air, meeting people, learning new skills, seeing spaces transform as the seasons change and being able to take home freshly grown produce are some of the ingredients that make Bite essential for good mental health.

We run a supported growing project at an allotment in South Manchester, with links to another community garden alongside Growing in the City in East Manchester. People who have experienced or are experiencing mental health problems get involved in planning, planting, growing, weeding and harvesting at the two sites - whatever the weather!

If you have an enthusiasm for growing, like working with people or want to develop or enhance your skills then you could consider volunteering with Bite. You could help support the delivery of the alotment sessions, work one to one with people or help with admin or social media.

If you want to find out how special it is to notice the seasons change and to grow your own veg then get involved in Bite - a really friendly and supportive project.
