Guerrilla Podcasts visits Garden Needs, a small, peaceful garden centre located on the edge of Kersal Dale (Nature Reserve on the River Irwell) in Salford to have a chat with Project Manager Simon McCloskey to find out a little more about the Garden Centre, the activities available and how you can get involved in your local community garden centre.
Simon chats with Adrian and lets you know how you can get involved in the various activities available at Garden Needs in Salford. Activities such as woodland management in Kersal Dale to improve access to the woods and help the wildlife quality in the area, creating herbal gardens, growing vegetables and horticultural training sessions within the garden centre itself.
During the chat Simon talks about the future of Garden Needs and the proposed creation of a new community cafe area, a new training room with improved training facilities and a space to hold social events to help Garden Needs, being a social enterprise business whose objectives are primarily social, whose profits are reinvested back into the garden centre with no financial commitments to shareholders or owners, to invest in the garden centre to make Garden Needs as efficient and effective as possible.
