COMPOST

'Compost Cam' - Compost arriving, then pairs of photos with dates showing how much is left, taken from two angles. To go straight to the latest two photos, place mouse pointer on the left edge of first photo and click back arrow twice.

15 tonnes of compost were delivered to our car park on Monday 11 November 2013.

Plotholders can collect as many barrow loads as they wish for their plots, at 50 pence each barrowful. This compost is some of the best as well as best-value nutrition for our soil, and easily available on site!

There is a box for your money. Please bring a selection of change, so you will have the right money for the number of barrow-loads you take (which may be more or less than the number you planned to take!). We also have I.O.U. slips for anyone without the right change.

We have to charge you, because we have to pay for the compost to be brought up the hill by John O'Connor, the company who do the gardening maintenance of Alexandra Park. We are most grateful to them, because, without their help, we would not be able to bring in the compost. We also understand John O'Connor will be generously donating our payment to their company charity. Nice people!

The compost is produced by North London Waste from household vegetable peelings and other food waste collected from homes combined with green waste from parks. It's too 'strong' to be used undiluted for seedlings (instead, mix with soil, sand and other components as appropriate), but is a fantastic fertiliser and soil-conditioner for digging in now, or in spring (better, if you plan to turn your soil over before planting, because less of the 'nutrition' will be washed out over winter), or for putting onto the soil around growing plants.

If you would like to know more about the compost, here is a Fact Sheet which gives detailed information (thanks for this link Therisa).

Any questions, please phone or email me.
