Secret Garden in Northern Quarter’s Nexus

Nexus art cafe gardening

Nexus cafe is creating a secret garden in the small courtyard at the back of its basement cafe – and it needs your help. I’m actually sitting in Nexus as I type looking out the back at the ladders and trellises, and can’t wait to see it finished. Over the past few weeks it’s been designed by volunteers and will have decking, gravel and lots of planters for flowers. By the looks of it it will be a real sun trap and if we ever see any sun this year, will be very pleasant.

Everything is being done in stages, and on Thursday evening (May 21) from 1-4pm volunteers are spreading the gravel and finishing the floors.They also need people to help make wooden planters so if anyone is handy with a hammer, give them a shout.

Saturday, May 23 is planting day, which will add the splash of colour to the week’s hard work. And then the finale is on Sunday, May 23, which is the grand opening with tea and cake in the garden.
