Engaging with the community

We think it is important to retain strong links with our local community.  

Each year we run public events - a plant sale in April time and an annual show in late August / early September, the proceeds from both are shared with a local charity chosen by the membership at the AGM. 

At November 2023's AGM, the members chose Perry's Panty as their focus for support. Past recipients have included The EdgeChorlton Good Neighbours and Reach Out to the Community.

Founded in 2020, Perry's Pantry was initially set up to support people struggling with the fallout caused by the pandemic from furlough, job losses etc. 

The charity was helping many people across various areas of Manchester during this time and was registered as a charity organisation in June 2021 with goals to carry on providing support beyond the pandemic. 

Flash forward to 2023 they are now an Award Winning charity providing much-needed food support to those in South & Central Manchester and Trafford affected by cost-of-living crisis. 

We also take part in the Chorlton Arts Festival each year and for the first time in 2022 we are taking part in Chorlton Open Gardens in support of the campaign “Freedom from Torture”.  This will be on June 26th from 11 to 5 pm.

We have links with local schools so children can come and see how vegetables are grown and we hope to extend this in the future.
