Chorlton Community Garden

The Friends of Chorlton Community Garden team are working to restore and re-open this special green oasis on Manchester Road, next to Chorlton Library.

This space is based on Manchester Road in Chorlton, between the Sedge Lynn Pub and Chorlton Library. It used to be a public toilet!

It was open to the public from around 2014 but then fell into a state of disrepair during closure times of Covid when it couldn't be looked after. A group of volunteers including individuals and people from organisations like Chorlton Voice, Chorlton Arts Festival Chorlton Plant Swap & Gardening Advice, Chorlton Community Land Trust and others are working to get the space cleared and re-designed. We welcome anyone who can bring time, skills or expertise to the group.

Please email Carolyn at to find out how to get involved so the garden can hopefully be reopened to the community.
