Sow the City is an award winning social enterprise based in Manchester. Established in 2009 with a few packets of seeds and some compost, we’re now the leading specialist food-growing company in the city.
Growing food in cities makes a lot of sense – gardens, allotments, patios, rooftops and window-ledges all have the potential to provide us with an abundance of free and nutritious food. Plus food grown in urban environments can help reduce food transportation, create jobs, and strengthen communities. We all have food in common – we eat it, crave it, and dream about it. So let’s celebrate and grow it.
We largely sell services. We offer:
- Community consultation
- Site design
- Running workshops
- Community development
