Activities for lockdown from Get up and Grow Co-op

Get up and Grow was founded as a social enterprise and co-operative by Hayley Watson and Michelle Garrity to work with groups all over Greater Manchester to get people involved in horticulture and the natural world. We at the Co-operative Heritage Trust have worked with them on Toad Lane to get more local people into growing and we want as many people as possible to enjoy the outdoors right now.

Update : We are incredibly saddened to hear that Michelle has recently passed away. She was passionate about getting local people hands on with nature and the staff at the Trust are very grateful for the time she spent with local people in Rochdale. We send our thoughts and best wishes to her family and friends.

There are six great downloadable activities for you to do at home - just click the links below.

Get up and Grow is still running workshops and formal training, garden design and work with special interest groups, schools and people with SEN.
