We have two more visits to the Eco Park on the North Circular Road – one in February (which is fully booked) and one on Friday 23rd March on which there is a few spare places. Contact me you are interested. We are still trying to get a visit to the Biffa Materials Recovery Facility (also in Edmonton).

I regularly get people asking about “the next Compost Giveaway”. I wonder if someone else would like to organise these. Contact me if you’d like to know what is involved. There is a wonderful short film of the first Compost Giveaway we organised in 2011
