Composting workshop in Wanstead


Redbridge Council is running a series of free composting workshops this week as part International Compost Awareness Week (7 to 13 May), including a session on Christ Church Green.

Around a third of waste produced in Redbridge is food waste. Households can help reduce this figure by putting their food waste to good use through composting, which is nature’s process of recycling food waste into nutrient rich sustenance for your garden. It’s also a money saver, as it a means you don’t have to buy compost for your garden.

“To help people get started on their composting journey or to get more tips if you’re already doing it, we’re running several community-based composting workshops,” said a council spokesperson.

The workshops will cover:

  • the basics of composting
  • do’s and don’ts
  • troubleshooting
  • busting composting myths
  • a sorting activity
  • Q&A session

Workshop locations:

  • 11 May 2023, 1pm-2pm, Hainault Forest Country Park, Hainault
  • 11 May 2023, 6pm-7pm, Christchurch Green, Wanstead
  • 13 May 2023, 12pm-1pm, South Park, Mayfield
