The Kitchen Garden


Our Kitchen Gardens are wellbeing allotments in Tameside, which are open to anybody who would like to get outdoors, learn about gardening, meet people or just enjoy natural surroundings. We grow a lot of the fruit and vegetables for our Topaz cafes, our participants also do wood work and craft projects to provide equipment for our allotments or products to sell to the local community.

You don’t need to have any previous experience or knowledge to come along to the Kitchen Gardens. It’s a great opportunity to learn new skills. We also welcome experienced gardeners or craftspeople, willing to share their knowledge and skills, and volunteers to support gardeners with additional needs.

We have two allotment sites, each with a different emphasis, and also run Gardening workshops and events at our sites. Click on the Site name on the left to find out more. If you want any further information  email or phone the allotment team on 0161 366 9966 for more information.
