#EdenProjectNorth #SavePomona #MecoS

Green Party Leader Natalie Bennett, actress Maxine Peake, dj and entrepreneur Dave Haslam, actor John Henshaw, comedian John Thomson and Olympic athlete Linford Christie have all signed up to the Save Pomona campaign to save Pomona Docks, an area of greenspace with big heritage value and high biodiversity levels that many scientists and green entrepreneurs are saying could be an Eden Project For The North, a project that could give the city a profile boost and unite people in the year of Manchester European City Of Science

Two events are being planned to highlight the flora and fauna of Pomona, Bee Real on Saturday 29th August and Focus On Flora on Sunday 30th August
