As one of the last events of the year, we were fortunate to have facilitator Jack Narbed with us, at the Kennington Park Road Community Garden.
We had a lovely turn out of guests from residents to network members. All brought together to learn about the magic of composting.
The session covered:
- The basics of composting – getting started
- Different techniques of composting
- Cold vs hot composting
- Composting at different scales
- Harnessing energy – in a permaculture context
And how to apply these in your homes and gardens, turning kitchen scraps and fallen leaves in dark rich compost.
Those who attended said:
‘Truly life enhancing knowledge.’
‘Jack was a fantastic facilitator. I certainly learnt a lot about composting.’
‘Top quality teaching… a balance of visual aids, practical demos, touch and talk, storytelling, lots of Q&A, so engaging.’
Jack works at Glengall Wharf Garden, a new member of our network, who are based on the eastern edge of Burgess Park. You can find out more about them at https://glengallwharfgarden.org.uk
They run weekly volunteering sessions and run a wonderful schedule of events through the seasons.
