Progress at the planned Stokes Wood Composting Demonstration site
Work is continuing in preparing the Stokes Wood, Allotment Demonstration site in Leicester. Most of the old raised beds have been removed at the layout of the bins has more or less been decided.
We will have two Reception bins at the entrance for green waste from the allotment plots. With 4 or 5 working pallet bins for hot composting the waste. The Hotbins, Jora and Green Johanna will be opposite near the entrance from the pavilion. A line of conventional domestic bins along the path to the shed will show cold composting techniques and what can go wrong! Tumbler bins, including a Mantis, will be situated near the shed and the wormeries. Towards the back of the plot the will be an area showing soaking methods of making compost and plant teas with a raised bed demonstration initially showing compost and comfrey teas in use.
