Allesley Park Walled Garden

Have you thought about making your own compost in your garden but not known where to start? We host an event of making your own compost at 10-12 noon on Saturday, Sept. 18.

There are two kinds of composts – hot composting and cold composting. We will demonstrate hot composting which can decompose quicker.

We will show you a good ratio of the carbon to nitrogen pile and how to make good organic compost during the event.

Scythe is the most important of all agricultural hand tools and has been used in farms for many centuries. It consists of a curved blade fitted at an angle to a long curved handle, used for cutting grain and grass. It has been considered as one of the zero-emission tools for the environment.

We are happy to demonstrate how to use the friendly environment tool properly and the aftercare in the Walled Garden on 28th and 29th August.

Our team member Mr Tim Claye will be happy to answer all the questions about the scythe.

Hope to see you all.
