Do you want to know more about how to make your own compost for your garden or allotment?
As part of Compost Awareness Week, which runs from 5 to 10 May, Lewisham Council is holding a compost workshop for residents.
When: Monday 6 May, Time: 5.00pm to 7.00pm, Location: Civic Suite, Catford.
Compost Awareness Week aims to encourage more people to recognise the benefits of home composting and the great results that can be achieved by using peat-free compost containing recycled material.
Did you know that as a nation we produce around 300 million tonnes of rubbish a year and over half of this waste can be easily recycled. Over one third of the contents of an average UK household bin can be home composted, not to mention all the garden waste that can be added to a compost bin.
As well as learning how to successfully get your own compost started, we also have a limited number of free compost bins available. If you would like to attend this or other compost workshops held during Compost Awareness Week, or get a free compost bin contact Beth Sowden on 020 8314 2053.
