European City of Science week

This week sees Manchester host several events as Science in the City: part of celebrating Manchester as the European City of Science 2016. St Ann’s Square featured the Allotment of the Future. Several of the issues that I’d seen at the Science Gallery in Dublin also featured here, with more on hydroponics and innovations to help feed the masses in the future. There were also two cross sections of soil types and what looked at a brief glance like a giant hydrangea.

The Allotment of the Future is definitely worth looking at if you happen to be in Manchester City Centre this week, and there are plenty of events going on round the city, including a Science Meets Poetry event at the John Rylands Library on Tuesday 26th July 2016.
