Garden Needs is your community garden centre set in the heart of the Salford community.
Our Vision is to . . . be the pioneer in connecting people with nature and inspiring them to lead healthier and happier lives.
To achieve this we run a local sustainable garden centre for the entire community providing excellent plants, training, volunteering opportunities, a rolling programme of seasonal activities, and opportunities to develop micro enterprises.
Garden Needs is a peaceful garden centre located on the edge of Kersal Dale (Nature Reserve on River Irwell) in Salford. Time, dedication, love and hard work have been invested over the years to create a centre with a true difference in a unique and magical environment.
