Sunday morning…

In spite of the rain I had a great Sunday – I cycled over to my studio and spent a couple of hours writing there. Every Sunday at the Mill there’s the Sunday Market where local artists sell their wares (alongside cake and cups of tea). There’s nothing like a cup of tea when you’re soaked through! I also bought a couple of screenprinted bags for a fiver made by Mary Lundquist.

A bit later I cycled over to Piccadilly Basin where the Northern Quarter Greening Group we’re part of have been setting up Growboxes (allotments) as part of the plan to Green the area. We now have an allotment there and planted tomato plants, radishes, spinach and peppers. Even though we were soaking wet it was great fun and I’m really looking forward to learning more about gardening.

Joe Weeks from the group is going to be at Envirolution next Sunday to talk about the project. What I love about Manchester is the sense of community there is to solve local challenges – and making it enjoyable to boot – what more could you ask for? Perfect Sunday.
