Repair or adapt

The best environmental choice is to repair, restore or adapt a product you already have. You may need professional help but it could still be cheaper than something new.

Ashton Open Allotment Day

Ashton Allotments, a micro- allotment with 6 plots for villagers received a special delivery of 1.2 tonnes of compost through our Community Composting Project. The brand new plot was created on community land, formally the home of a dilapidated 1920’s village hall.

Jan Willetts, allotment holder and Master Composter said:

“Our free compost will make a big difference to our new allotments. Looking after your soil is so important if you want good results from your plants, whether they are Flowers and shrubs or fruit and vegetables. Adding compost to your soil helps to maintain a good structure, improving drainage and water retaining capacity at the same time. We never know if we are facing a soggy summer or a threatened drought, but keeping your soil in good heart means plants will cope better whatever happens!”

The villagers also held a Scarecrow Competition to celebrate Compost Awareness Week. See our Facebook pages for photos.
