Wondering what to do with your pumpkin(s) post Halloween?
Composting them is a great option, although not everyone knows how to do it, or has space for a compost bin or heap at home.
If you, your school, club, group, or family, have a pumpkin or pumpkins to dispose of please bring them to
Stokeswood Allotment Compost Demonstration site, 2b Stokes Drive LE3 9BR
on Saturday 13th November 10.30 – 12.30 – continuing into the afternoon as required
(Other dates can be arranged by appointment).
Drop your pumpkins and run, or stay and have a smashing time getting them ready for composting . Please wear appropriate clothing if you intend to take part in the pumpkin smash as it can get messy!
While you are there you’ll have the opportunity to learn a bit about composting from a Master Composter, take a tour the composting demonstration site and learn about the range of different composting techniques available. There’s also a cafe on site.
Schools and Groups – if you have pumpkins that require collection / transportation please email carryoncomposting1 @gmail.com to make arrangements.
