The Great Compost Giveaway 2011 was organised by Sustainable Haringey, Muswell Hill Sustainability Group and en10ergy and was meant to start at 10 am on Sunday 30 October in the Paddocks Car Park, Ally P. However, punters with shovels and bags started streaming in from 9.30 and 14 tonnes of compost were cleared by about 500 visitors in 4 hours.
[Question: How many kilos of compost went into the boot of the average family car? Answer: Quite a lot]
Many thanks to the Edmonton Ecopark (London Waste Limited) for delivering a lorryload of the stuff, also to Joyce Rosser and her cheerful team of volunteer stewards and to Angelica Landry who made a brilliant film of it.
It was so much fun, we are planning another one for February or March next year.
