Gardening 101 Workshop at Birley Campus

1st May 13:00 to 16:00
Join us for a gardening session at Birley to redevelop two of our large planter areas on campus and find out how you can help in the greening of the Manchester Met campus!

Birley Fields is one of Manchester Met’s greenspaces on campus that aims to incorporate sustainability into every aspect of its design.

The sessions will focus on preparing the ground and planting a range of plants to help boost biodiversity and the enhance appearance of the areas.

You will be working directly with the University’s head gardener and alongside other students where there will be plenty of opportunity to learn about a range of horticultural issues and top gardening tips.

In this session, we’ll be focussing planting out a selection of plants in two large planters. This will be a physical activity, involving shovels, spades, and wheelbarrows!

The session will take place in all weather conditions. Please make sure you wear weather appropriate clothing, including suitable footwear (not open footwear allowed).

Meet our student sustainability ambassadors by the entrance to the Brooks building
