Incredible Edible Manchester

Join Incredible Edible Manchester and help give local communities the opportunity to grow their own sustainable fruit and vegetables and improve local biodiversity.

From its humble beginnings in a small town in the North of England in 2007, Incredible Edible is now a real embodiment of ‘the power of small ideas’ with networks of volunteers in towns and cities around the globe.

Incredible Edible Manchester has been set up by Manchester City Council and The University of Manchester along with community groups and residents from across Manchester and offers opportunities for students looking to learn more about sustainable urban food production through an accessible hands-on approach.

The group currently has around 15 sites ranging from Cheetham Hill in the north of the city, down to Withington in the south.

As well as clearing, digging and planting across our sites around central and South Manchester, Incredible Edible volunteers have the opportunity to meet and work alongside people within the local community. 

Explore the Incredible Edible Network website for an insight into how it all began, or to find groups in other regions, and keep an eye on Incredible Edible Manchester website for information on up-coming activities in Manchester.
