You have saved my life. Coming to the gardens has saved my life. You are all so very nice and welcoming. You occupy me and make me feel goodMatt
I have struggled for a long time with my mental illness and it’s good to know you are always there, to involve me in a project or some gardening work every time I need it, without asking too many questions.Marjory

Volunteer with us!
Hulme Community Garden Centre is a unique community led inner-city horticultural project. Our mission is to bring the local community together through gardening.
Up to 100 volunteers contribute to HCGC each week across all age groups and from a wide range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds, both local and from further afield. From participating, volunteers can gain an insight into how a garden centre works and develop skills in a wide range of areas. We aim to provide an environment where people can learn, develop and share skills and information about horticulture, and wider environmental and sustainability issues. From maintaining the community gardens, woodworking, assisting with our supported sessions to getting involved in our community cafe, we offer a huge range of volunteering experiences.
If you’re interested in getting involved, you’ll need to come in for a short induction first. These take place every Thursday at 1.30pm, or on Saturdays and Sundays after midday.
