A summary of the Green Social Prescribing work in Crumpsall 

Throughout the Autumn of 2023, Groundwork Greater Manchester were based at Crumpsall Park, working with one of the in-patient wards from North Manchester General Hospital as part of the Sow the City project. 

Six male patients attended weekly sessions across six weeks, centred around growing, nature crafts or outdoor activities.  

With participants showing an improvement in wellbeing, Gemma Harris, a Community Project Lead at Groundwork , said: 

“It’s been a really lovely 6 weeks. I can really see a difference in some participants, they always come full of smiles and they’ve been really excited to get started”
