Live in Moss Side?


Community: Moss Side

Welcome to the Moss Side neighbourhood hub. Here you can find out more about what’s happening in your local area and how to get involved.

Moss Side is a vibrant part of the city, rich in cultural diversity. There is a growing number of small businesses and community projects that are responding to local needs and contributing to the area's strong sense of community and identity.

We are pleased that Moss Side has been included in the “In Our Nature” programme, so are keen to hear your views and what you think can be done to help all of us live in ways that are better for us, our community and the environment.

How to get involved

Get involved with a local community project as a chance to connect with nature while benefiting the wider community by creating better, greener, more welcoming spaces for all.

Learn growing skills and create a better food growing space for the community 

We would love to invite you along to Ossory Street Allotments, whether you have lots of experience or none at all, to help out at our new Community Plot in Rusholme! 

At the moment we’re planting winter veggies, clearing spaces, collecting leaves to create compost. A great opportunity to get out, gain new skills and meet new people from the local area.

We meet on site Thursdays, 1:30-3:30pm. 

Please get in touch with any questions - emily@sowthecity.org or 07704 549395.

Where? 319 Great Western Street M14 4BZ.

Visit the Hungry Be Fed Community Fridge

The Hungry Be Fed Community Fridge is a space where everyone can share surplus food, including donations from local food businesses, producers, households and gardens.  

It's a tried and tested way of stopping food ending up in the bin and bring people together to access healthy food, try something new and save money. 

Where? 232 Claremont Road in Moss Side. 

Everyone one is welcome! Drop in to visit the fridges anytime on Wednesday and Thursday from 1-5pm.

Got a question or want to donate your surplus food? Please contact Wendy on 07541983086.

Listen to the sound of Manchester's nature

Did you know that plants can make music? We worked with sound artist Jason Singh and Manchester poetry collective Young Identity to create an immersive songs made from nature in Alexandra Park.

The songs were recorded using immersive 3D sound technologies and featured as part of the special augmented reality installation at St Ann’s Arcade in October. It’s unbeleafable what nature can do.

Want to hear the song? Listen back here to hear what sound an Oak Tree makes, and listen to Reece Williams speak about his relationship with nature and green spaces around Moss Side.

Curious about agroforestry?

Come down to Moss Side Community allotment to find out what it’s all about! With a team of volunteers we worked together to  create a space for chickens to roam under fruit trees. The animals will help reduce the pests in the soil, enrich the soil, and keep the weeds down, so that more food can be grown for local residents.

Where? Moss Side community allotment, Bowes St, Manchester M14 4UW
