Workshops & Spaces

At Grassmovement we want to turn ideas into action, and we hope that our fine selection of workshops will help you to do just that.

Workshops are inclusive and welcoming and no prior knowledge is necessary – go ahead, try something new or something you love <3

Permaculture Area with The Gaskell Garden Project

We are so very excited to announce that Manchester’s own, The Gaskell Garden Project (GGP) will be hosting a space and giving workshops at Grassmovement this year. In Manchester, GGP aims to create a creative, safe and accessible garden space where they can advance the social and emotional well-being of local refugee and asylum seekers. The project aims to combat isolation by providing a social platform for local people seeking refuge in the Rusholme/Moss Side/Fallowfield area to meet with the local community through permaculture gardening. This fantastic project aims to promote cultural cohesion amongst the local community by providing inspiring and engaging workshops in sustainability, food sharing and employment skills. Through their work they improve the local environment by encouraging biodiversity, providing new habitats and recycling/upcycling local waste materials and food that would otherwise go to landfill.
