We have received a small pot from Veolia and are working with MakeSoil.org to help to create soil-making hubs in Lambeth’s community gardens.
MakeSoil.org has been set up to help move away from the negative connotations of compost – that it’s smelly and slimy, and attracts rats.
As gardeners, we all know the incredible benefits of creating good compost and MakeSoil is suggesting we can make even more lovely, nutrient-rich soil by inviting our neighbours to deposit their food waste in our bins.
So far we have delivered six compost bins – to Spring Gardens, Spurgeon Secret Garden and Gipsy Hill community garden. Two more are in the process of being built – join the revolution!
Become a Hub
Do you think your community garden would like to become one of the first city hubs? We are looking for volunteers, and will support you through the process. It’s pioneering stuff!
Our hubs are being offered two compost bins each, free of charge.
