As part of our sustainability objective, all green material is to be used by the gardens and none to be sent off-site in the rubbish bin.
For people worried about weeds there is a green waste plastic bin next to the compost to allow weeds to die back before composting.
Please place all green waste in the storage area in the corner of the food forest. The green waste needs to be no more than 300mm long before placing in the storage bin. Please do not place any green material directly into the compost bins.
Making compost is an important resource for the Community Gardens. It uses our green waste and produces a valuable plant food for use in food forest, the perimeter beds and our own beds.
From time to time we also have compost workshops, working bees, trips to pick up manure etc, details will appear here, on the blackboard, in the newsletter.
