JUST AS I WAS WONDERING WHERE TO GET MY COMPOST FROM...
September 5, 2016
A BIG COMPOST GIVEAWAY to the rescue!!
Waltham Forest's CULTIVATE - Urban Food Growing Festival, have been giving away free compost in huge steaming piles around the borough all week, and until 11th Sept 2016. Problem solved.
I just got loooads of free compost for my gardening, all completely plastic-free, yessss! (ok, it did have a few scraps of plastic rubbish in it, which just illustrates the need to avoid the stuff even more)
Here's my strong man helping me scoop it up...
It's also possible to get loose compost from Growing Concerns, a lovely little garden centre just off Victoria Park. They let you scoop it into your own container as well, but this only offers a solution to small gardening projects as their container is pretty small. And I suspect the compost in there originally comes from the plastic packages they have on sale.
Keeping my eyes open for any more plastic-free gardening opportunities.
