Background

The one and a half acre site was previously a Council plant nursery, run by the Parks Department. It closed in 2011 and a large part of the site lay unused until 2015, when the Council partnered with us – The Kindling Trust – as part of Feeding Stockport to bring in a range of new activities and organisations.

The ambitious partnership included 16 different stakeholders and was made possible through the work of Feeding Stockport, and the willingness of Stockport Council to work towards becoming a Sustainable Food City.

The nursery fits into Kindling’s overall mission to transform our food system into one which is fairer, healthier for people, and better for the environment.
