Ardwick Climate Action Community Bulb Planting and Climate Event
Ardwick Climate Actions' mission is to protect our local environment through grassroots advocacy that engages the local community. Their work encompasses the renewing of green spaces, monitoring pollution levels, and climate advocacy through community engagement.
Come along to this community day at A6 Young People's Centre, 32-34 Wilson St, Manchester, M13 9EX. Click here for Google Maps.
Ardwick is one of the most deprived areas in Manchester, and much work is needed to reengage and sensitise the community back to nature and the climate crisis that affects all its residents.
