We've a fairly large garden and produce far more compost than we can ever use. I'm wondering if anyone here would be interested in dropping by and helping themselves to as much as they want ?

It's composed of lawn mowings, kitchen fruit/veg trimmings, shredded prunings from lots of shrubs/hedges, etc. It's quite crumbly and sweet-smelling and, in my opinion, would be ideal for soil-conditioning.

I would regard this as being eco-friendly/organic since I don't use any additives or accelerators ... just leave Mother Nature to do her stuff. It's stored in an enclosed area about 12ft x 4ft x 2-3ft high and is about 2 year's old.

Now for the cost ... absolutely free to anyone prepared to bring their own bags and fill them themselves !

that sounds like a great offer. There should be plenty of GIY ers around wgho should be interested in it. Try a poster at a local farmers market. Best of luck to you.

Never thought of that ! In previous years I've offered it on places like FreeCycle, Jumbletown, FreeTradeIreland, etc, but (regrettably) only come across a few genuine takers ... if it's not ready-bagged, most people just don't want the bother.

I had hoped that -- with so many allotmenteers on this forum -- I would have found more people willing to come and help themselves. Ah well, if the local farmers market (such a great idea, thank you) doesn't produce any takers, we'll just have to put it under the hedges ... yet again !
