Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.

We've got a Greenhouse in the heart of MMU and you are all warmly invited to join us! What are you waiting for?

The Greenhouse is a creative space for the wider community to share innovative ideas linked to learning and teaching; to experiment and enable cross-disciplinary fertilisation; to inspire, stimulate and infect others with the bug for innovation and to grow as teachers. All welcome, students and teachers!

Always wanted to do some creative gardening and never got around to it? Here is your chance. Be warned! This is not an ordinary Greenhouse.

Join us once a month to grow ideas that will make learning and teaching experiences  more stimulating and exciting! Bring your creative ideas with you, whether they are seeds, seedlings or fully grown plants. There is room for all of them in this Greenhouse. Come along even if you feel you are empty handed, and share in the experience with like minded people. See ideas develop and grow! Connect with colleagues and students from around the university and beyond.
