Compost question

Posted: 06/02/2014 at 13:52

Tracey, It was a 2 day course with Norfolk Council and Garden Organic (a charity). We are expected to do 30 hours a year promoting composting in the community (last year I did 75 hours and loved every minute). The Council supply us with a gazebo, a wormery, tables, publicity material and quizzes for people to play. We go to village and church fetes, allotment parties, primary schools etc.

Water butt advice

I agree with clueless; it won't cost much to replace the downpipe when you leave (as long as you don't live in a 3 storey house), then you could take the water butt with you. Check the price of downpipe first though, there are some fancy ones that may be pricey.

Compost question

On the composting course I did, they said the worms simply come 'by magic' and it does seem to be true. Also, I think they are not ordinary garden worms; redder, smaller and thinner. Every time I open the lid of the bin there are a few lingering on the edge of the lid.

Lawnmower Chris, I really admire you for doing that, far too many people are stuck in jobs that they loathe, my advice to them all is to find one that you like. When I started out I was a graphic designer in Television. All the people I worked with were hooked on the high wage packets and stressed out beyond belief. I took the leap into the unknown to become a mural painter and though I will never be 'rich' I have had such rewarding experiences working round the world that I would not change that choice I made 42 years ago for anything

Mike Allen, it was lovely to hear about your experiences, the only thing that would get you booed off I think would be a lack of kindness towards other forumites. (is that a new word?)
