Anaerobic Digestion - A revolutionary new composting system
Click here for further information Work is well underway converting our greenhouse into digester storage facility and a volunteer space. Next week we should be installing the solar panels that will heat the digestate (food waste) and turn it into liquid fertilizer and biogas. We have some liquid fertilizer from Camley Street that we will experiment with in the garden.

What we do
People from all cultural and diverse backgrounds participate and enrich our activities. Our volunteer and training programme helps people learn new skills, provides opportunity for social interaction and out door exercise as well as offering horticultural training for adults with learning difficulties. Environmental and food growing sessions encourage and develop awareness of organic methods and composting. Bangladeshi women and older people as well as families participate growing their own food. Our 5-a-side futsal pitch provides programmes to improve health and well-being for young people as well as generating vital revenue from hiring.
