Attend a workshop and get a free compost bin

infrastructure boost

Do you want to get composting at home? Already tried, but it didn’t work? Moved home and want to save some money in the garden? Whatever the reason we have the ideal free training for aspiring composters in Essex.

This Spring sign up for one of our training events and get answers to all your questions.

During the 2-hour workshop you will learn how to set up your compost bin for maximum success, what to place in your bin and what not to, know how to solve common problems such as ants and unwanted smells. Plus, you will get all the answers to any other questions you may have.

In return you will receive either a 220 or 330 litre compost bin free of charge (worth £8.98 and £9.98 respectively) and delivered to your home usually within the two weeks following the training day.
