Work starts on new Compost demonstration site

The first batch of compost bins have been moved to the new composting demonstration site at Stokes Wood Allotments Leicester. Once the formalities have been completed further bins and wormeries will be used to compost waste, that is currently being burned, from the allotments and catering waste from the breakfast club. More information to follow once permissions are granted for the site.  The new facility will allow us to hold a programme of composting workshops and activities for schools throughout the year.  The new site would not be possible without the support of Stokes Wood Allotment Society and the National Allotment Society (NAS) Leicester. While the Compost site will not be open until the spring visitors are welcome to drop in and enjoy a cooked breakfast on Wednesday mornings.  The photo shows the first bins in position.

If you're interested in a plot at Stokes Wood, please use this link for the Council's allotments enquiry form. They will let you know as soon as a plot becomes free. http://bit.ly/15T0x6i
