A volunteer on Petrus’ Incredible Medical Allotment, Martin beams with pure joy when he considers the life-enhancing powers of growing for the garden’s visitors, young and old alike. Turning a patch of unloved land into a community resource for growing everything from chillies to potatoes, as well as maintenance and decorating the site, volunteers develop horticultural skills through hands-on experience as well as meet other people in the community. Martin is there, in any weather, ready to lend a hand and, if needed, a listening ear.
Hidden Tales is a unique and inspiring digital arts trail led by CAN (Community Arts North West) and the Petrus Community, a charity working with people who are homeless or at risk across Rochdale, Rossendale and Oldham.
