The course starts on 27th April 2022 and runs for one afternoon each week for six weeks (1pm-4pm). It will be taught and facilitated by Sow the City, Met Munch and a variety of other Manchester-based environmental organisations. Participants will attend in person lectures at Manchester Metropolitan University, work on environmental projects and events, and develop campaigns about food production and climate change.
Groundwork is a federation of charities mobilising practical community action on poverty and the environment across the UK. Groundwork was established in 1981 as a radical experiment to bring together communities, businesses and government in a joint effort to improve the quality of life and promote sustainable development in places that had become run-down and neglected.
