Recently we’ve supported the maintenance of community allotments in Lurgan through the donation of our New Leaf Compost product.
This will assist with the upkeep of 40 raised bed plots, a polytunnel, an orchard and fruit hedges at an allotment at St Francis' Primary School in Lurgan.
We take much pride in supporting various community initiatives and seeing first-hand the positive impact it can have on both physical and mental health.
This scheme benefits children in particular and it’s heartening that they can experience and learn the benefits of horticulture and good recycling from a young age.
The compost we donated to this community has been made from the discarded food and garden waste within that very area. This is the perfect example of the circular economy and perfectly illustrates how we can ‘grow, eat, compost, repeat.
SDLP Lurgan Councillor Ciaran Toman said:
“With this donation, people can see the tangible benefits of effective household recycling flowing back into our community to further encourage the sorts of behavioural changes that can lead to even more material being reused or recycled in the future, as we collectively strive to combat the current climate emergency.”
We love to see communities working together like this and we are pleased to be able to play our part and support the maintenance of these plots.
