This is a short blog to say that if anyone in Leeds has any questions about home composting just now, I’d be happy to try and answer them.
Particularly if you’re just starting out but are not sure how to do so, I’d be happy to offer a few tips.
Leeds City Council has suspended the brown bin service, and closed the Household Waste Sites, so we need to find something else to do with our garden waste this summer.
I wouldn’t call myself a massive “technical” expert in composting, but I have been giving it a go at home for the last 25 years. I also used to run a composting project on a city farm, and also worked with other composting groups elsewhere in the UK. So, I may have some idea of what might or might not work for you.
I’m also on furlough from my current employer at the moment, so have some time on my hands! I’d be happy to help if I can.
I’ve written a couple of previous blogs about home composting, which provide a bit of background:
Home composting in a small garden
I’ve also recorded a 15-minute “demo” Composting Podcast (a Com-Post-Cast!), on the subject of how to manage your garden waste during Lockdown. Listen here:
So, if you have any composting queries, you are welcome to contact me using the Comments box below, or on Twitter. Alternatively, visit the Zero Waste Leeds Facebook page
Hope that’s useful!
