Leicester Composting Demonstration Site Photos

 The  demonstration site  managed by  Garden Organic/ Leicestershire  Master Composters has  moved from the University Botanic Garden to Bradgate Park at Newtown Linford.

The site will  shows a wide range of compost bins owned by the composters or donated to them by individuals, charities,  suppliers manufactures etc.

  The new venue, in the  small allotment garden next to the ConservatoryTea Rooms and close to the main car park,   will demonstrate the composting of cooked food, kitchen and garden waste.   The adjacent cafe serves  locally sourced products and homemade cakes in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.   

The site,  when completed will show a wide range of bins for  composting garden and kitchen waste. It will include a range of  wormeries and bins for the composting of cooked food.   If space is available it will also  include an area devoted to the preparation of liquid fertilizers e.g. comfrey tea, nettle tea and both conventional  and aerated compost tea. These are seasonal displays dependent of the growth of our nettles and comfrey.

The site is reached by walking through the Allotment by the cafe
