Join us for two mapping workshops in Trafford, looking for land suitable for growing fruit and vegetables.

We are working with the Everyday Growing Cultures project and Open Data Manchester to run two mapping workshops in Old Trafford, looking for land which is suitable for growing fruit and vegetables.

If you would like to see a greener and more productive Old Trafford and would like to learn how to use technology to make it happen, join us!

We will run a workshop on the opportunities for growing veg in urban areas. We will then be walking the streets & identifying spaces – collating the data and uploading onto a map.
