Ridgeway Street Community Garden is located in East Manchester in Miles Platting. It was established in spring 2001 and is supported and maintained by members of the local community. It aims to create a healthy outdoor space that is a focus for the whole community and can be used to promote natural gardening methods and foster communication skills and co-operation with children and young people. There are environmental arts projects, gardening workshops, events and outings organised via the community garden. MERCI(the centre for sustainable development) is two minutes away.
