Alexandra Park, Whalley Range, M16 Manchester
Be part of an exciting experiment to grow GIANT vegetables. Learn
about Orgonite and get the chance to test out on your own 'pod'.
A simple mixture of resin, aluminium shavings and a crystal, the
Orgonite technology is thought to have a positive effect on the human
body and nature. Alexandra Arts has teamed up with freelance
journalist Mark Bennett, who ran trials last year, growing giant
vegetables in both East Sussex and Liverpool. Mark will be there to
talk about his own experience. At this session will you a chance to
make your own Orgonite pod so you can carry out your own trial at home.
In collaboration with Barry Noble: Grounds Maintenance/Play Area and
Development Manager, Manchester City Council. A separate Orgonite
trial will be carried out in the new show garden (by the Park Wardens
Office building) that is part of the "Food for free" programme. "Food
for free" is a five year scheme planned to start this spring, growing
edibles in over 80 parks and green spaces all over Manchester
The 'Super Resin' workshops is a part of a series of art
"Happenings", aiming to engage the local community, deepening their
