Allotment Composting Survey
As composting is an important part of waste management, reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill and the need for bonfires on the allotment we would like to increase our understanding of the number of members who compost and the method they use.
If you have a UK allotment or community garden, please complete the survey in google forms https://forms.gle/XJ8jvMMNPNUF65Qr
On-site Training Sessions
We are also hoping to start Composting Training sessions at Stokes Wood Allotment Composting Demonstration site, Leicester as soon as the lockdown restrictions permit. We are planning to introduce a basic session for those new to composting or wishing to develop their basic skills and more specialised sessions on Hot Composting, Bokashi composting, Making plant and compost teas, vermiculture and allotment community composting. Those completing the relevant session would receive an Allotment Compost Mentor Certificate The sessions would include practical activities on the demonstration site with lunch and refreshments being provided. In addition, we are hoping to produce an on-line or distance learning version that might include an optional practical session on site.
