About the Event
Join us for a talk by Emma Nosurak, owner of Plant Shop Manchester. Emma started her business after a trip to Melbourne, where she was inspired by the large number of nurseries dotted around the city. Her mission to bring 'more green' to Manchester started out with just 100 mini cacti outside an office. Five years later, Emma now has a thriving business in Stockport and has also had successful pop-ups in Altrincham and Sale. Emma will be talking to us about the many virtues of houseplants, how she got into the industry, and her experience of running her own business.
We'll also be collecting donations for Wood Street Mission's Books Forever 2022 appeal. Our chosen charity are seeking donations of brand new books suitable for children aged 0-16 years old to help inspire a love of reading in children from low income families across Manchester and Salford. From The Very Hungry Caterpillar to Harry Potter, Matilda to The Gruffalo, both fiction and non-fiction are welcome - why not donate your favourite book as a child! Visit their website (https://www.woodstreetmission.org.uk/our-projects/books-forever/) for ideas and links to their Amazon Wish Lists.
