These plant pots symbolise Manchester’s connection with water and its continued support of the city. I hope that these pots will help encourage people to grow their own plants, which can then be replanted throughout Manchester building a green city.
During the Industrial Revolution Manchester’s shipping canal was built allowing it to be the world’s largest inland port. The canal put Manchester on the map, boosting its economy rapidly helping it to grow and develop. The city relied heavily on the canal, which provided a strong connection to the Atlantic. The ocean carried the city through its growth.
The city is still growing and improving, and I want to help it become a greener and cleaner space. The water cycle contributes to the growth of the green city, allowing the Atlantic ocean to once again help Manchester grow and develop.
