Yesterday was the launch new scheme set up by the group “Eat Green.” They have had the great idea of setting up “Garden tool libraries” that allow aspiring gardeners to borrow all manner of gardening tools, which they can then keep for up to three weeks.
They began the scheme at Westcroft Community Centre Burnage and you can still borrow tools from there on Fridays between 12:30 to 5:30. However, not content to just run one “tool library,” they’ve extended the scheme to Didsbury library. The launch event took place yesterday at Didsbury library and you can pop down any time to borrow tools, free of charge.
We all live hectic, busy lives, so it can be really difficult to eat healthily and fast-food can be really tempting at times.
Producing your own food and using an allotment, in fact, has a number of benefits that very much outweigh the small inconvenience of using up a little more time. Households could save up to £1300 per year through growing their own food and the “tool libraries” of “Eat Green” make it easier than ever to grow your own food.

@EatGreenUK have some big ambitions and I wish them the best of luck in their events and campaigns. Make sure to pop down in the next couple of weeks and check it out too!
