Make Soil!

‘Composting’ is not always considered a very glamorous activity – but as gardeners, we all know the incredible benefits of creating good compost – or ‘gardeners’ gold’.

We are partnering with and are trying to persuade everyone to generate much more lovely, nutrient-rich soil by inviting our neighbours to deposit their food waste in our compost bins.

We already have seven MakeSoil sites in Lambeth – take a look at the website and type in your postcode to find your nearest site; you could become a MakeSoil supporter today.

Find out more about MakeSoil here: is an online platform that gives local citizens and municipalities all the tools they need to rapidly create a decentralized network of citizen-run neighborhood composting hubs in their community – keeping organic waste out of the landfill, bringing down greenhouse gas emissions, saving taxpayers’ money and, of course, making soil!
