Levenshulme Old Library is a charitable organisation, providing a community arts centre for all in our area. We would like to develop our outdoor space to provide an area in which community groups can work together to grow or develop workshops that enable people to connect. Especially since Covid19 struck, which has made it more important than ever that members of the community can meet in outdoor spaces. Our grounds are currently unloved, as we have been concentrating on maintaining and improving the interior of the building!
We would love to create a community garden that is available for groups to use for gardening projects, for schools/children to use for activities, for exercise and wellness sessions, and for art workshops.
Below we have put some images of the spaces to show you what we want to address, and the work of local volunteers already. We want to improve the front, the side and back of the building to make it more pleasant, safer and more usable.
We want to improve planters at the front of the building!
We want to trim and manage the trees to let in more light and make it safer!
We want to improve the garden areas at the side of the building!
We have already done a lot!
We want to continue to improve the rear of the building, to make it more useable.
Volunteers already have cleared the space. Now we want to add growing areas.
We want to look at our parking areas
As a charity, we need the help of our local community and the wider community to realise these plans - please donate in whatever way you can to improve the lives of all of those in Levenshulme!
