Hulme Community Garden Centre

Hulme Community Garden Centre (HCGC) has asked URBED to help to develop a new building on the centre's extension site, Manchester Urban Growing Centre (MUGC). The garden centre is a community ran not-for-profit horticultural project located in the south of Manchester.

The MUGC will be a new hub building able to accommodate the growing needs of the expanding centre and able to engage the local community more effectively. To be better equipped with being able to design the unique centre, URBED shall be hosting a community workshop to generate thoughts and ideas.
