About the Company

Our relationship with food is changing. The way we grow it. The way we consume it. The way we sell it. It has to, for everyone’s sake. By making places for people to grow food, Manchester Urban Diggers (MUD) are making sure that change is a positive one. It’s all about showing people that sustainability can be fun, profitable and a force for good in the community. In the two years since setting up we’ve established Platt Fields Market Garden (PFMG) as a community hub and MUD as a valued social enterprise. And, like the food we produce, we’re growing every day. Which is why we’re looking for new people to join us who can help our social enterprise continue to flourish.
