The Kindling Trust


Located just a mile east of Stockport's centre, Woodbank Memorial Park is home to Woodbank Park Nursey - an urban horticulture hub that joins up inclusive community gardening with commercial organic food production.

Its the size of one a half football pitches, and includes several large polytunnels for under-cover veg growing.

A collection of organisations are working together on the site to make it a hub for local food, with current activities including:

  • Glebelands City Growers - A small market garden business which produces organic salad and veg for sale in Greater Manchester shops and cafes.
  • FarmStart - A training programme for amatuer growers who want to expand into commercial organic veg growing, run by ourselves at The Kindling Trust.
  • Stockport Beekeepers - a training apiary for budding beekeepers
  • local community growing groups.

Opportunities and events

A varied programme of activities is open to local residents, includes bee-keeping, foraging and organic gardening. Please visit our website for further information.

The Nursery is still developing its activities and we want it to serve its local community - so get in touch if you'd like to get involved or have ideas for the site.
