About Us

We are Manchester Urban Diggers.

Jo, Sam and Mike founded MUD in 2019 after creating Platt Fields Market Garden in 2017

We make places for people to grow food.

We are here to develop community gardens around Greater Manchester.

We help community groups, businesses and public services develop ways of growing food in an urban environment.

We are passionate about sustainable gardening and food growing practices and aim to improve soil quality and increase bio-diversity across the city.


We want to create beautiful, therapeutic places for everyone to use and enjoy as a remedy to the busy city we live in.

We share and promote the health benefits that community gardening can bring to local residents through Social and Therapeutic Horticulture.

If you are interested in working with us and would like to discuss a new project, workshop delivery or consultancy, please email us or call.

We'd love to hear from you!
