Our café provides healthy affordable meals whilst promoting a greater awareness of how food can positively make a difference to mental health.

Why not come along and help us to grow fresh healthy food whilst learning new skills and having fun at our Chorlton allotment.

Every Tuesday and Thursday from 12.30 – 4pm (Thursdays only in winter)

Please note that we are unable to offer supported one to one placements, however, if you have a key worker who is able to support you please contact Fran Gammon to discuss further.
