Hello! We are…
A not for profit, community led organisation, created by 3 enterprising local residents in 1999 with a shared vision of greening and regenerating Hulme and its surrounds.
Our garden centre, open to the public 7 days a week is the heart of our business and gets bigger and better every year. We grow as much of our stock as possible and never use or sell artificial fertilisers, chemicals or peat from peat bogs.
In our shop you will find cards, crafts and unique gifts made by local artists.
Around this we have our public gardens, available to anyone who wants to escape the urban jungle for a while and be surrounded by flowers, bees, birds and the many frogs who call Hulme Garden Centre their home! Our demonstration beds are there to illustrate and encourage anyone interested in growing their own healthy, tasty produce.
Our core ethos has always been to step as lightly as possible upon the planet. Creative recycling has helped shape our development and rather unique visual appearance, and our avoidance of all chemicals is reflected in our abundant wildlife.
Volunteers are an integral part of everything we do, without whom we could not achieve all we do. Anyone can get involved, some stay for a few weeks and some for many years! We also work with people who have learning or mental health difficulties who enjoy the benefits of getting involved with plants and nature.
We also offer training on and off site, venue hire, run a thriving toddler group, design and build gardens around the city and lead challenge groups. And we hold four ever popular public events every year. It is our commitment to our community that drives us, that and our love for anything that grows, wriggles, crawls, or flies.
