Digging deep for green growth! Brandon Country Park free compost giveaway event

Free compost giveaway event

Residents of West Suffolk took advantage of a fantastic opportunity to enrich their gardens at the free compost giveaway held at Brandon Country Park on Wednesday 8 May 2024.

The compost provided was a result of the garden waste materials collected by West Suffolk Council’s bin crews from across the district. Throughout the day, gardeners of all levels had the opportunity to find out more from the Suffolk Master Composter volunteers about the benefits of composting, including improved soil health, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and decreased reliance on chemical fertilizers.

Cllr Victor Lukaniuk, Deputy Leader of the Council and ward member for Brandon West said: "We are thrilled by the overwhelming response to our free compost giveaway event – we had people eagerly turning up all day, ready to fill their bags with compost. It is inspiring to see so many residents eager to embrace sustainable practices and make a positive impact on the environment."
