Cathy’s compost

Posted on June 27, 2013

IMG_3787A Sunday afternoon in Headington, Oxford  at the invitation of Low Carbon Headington’s garden group to discuss composting and generally trouble-shoot. Ten eager composters and plenty of  informed questions. Debates around the relative advantages of ‘daleks’, rotating bins and the wooden slatted variety. Host Cathy came up trumps by having examples of all three in use in her garden as well as a leaf-mould  bin made from wire netting. Most surprising question? The use of seaweed in compost. Well yes it has its place as organic material, but lets face it Oxford is about as far as you can get from the sea in the UK or does this low carbon group know something about global warming and  imminent sea level rises that the rest of us don’t? A tour of Cathy’s  great selection of composting technologies was rounded off with tea and home-made cakes – none containing carrageen.
