We recently joined with The Three Sisters Gardening Community in west Belfast to aid the transformation of waste ground with the creation of new community gardens.
The project first established last year, seeks to brighten vacant ground in the Oakman Street and Cavendish Street areas, to help improve their appearance while also boosting the wellbeing of local residents.
Our compost will be used for the local community’s raised beds which have formed a space where people can sow herbs and vegetables and create flower beds.
We pride ourselves in the local community and we continually place them at the centre of everything we do so it’s incredibly satisfying to know that our compost will prove beneficial to not only the local community’s mental health but to the local environment also.
The compost the gardening group will be using has been made using food waste collected from the very residents that are now able to enjoy the community garden, this is the definition of a circular economy – something we pride ourselves in and we’re extremely proud of the role we play in this.
Brenda Gough of Three Sisters Community Gardening Group said “We’re extremely grateful to New Leaf Compost for their very generous donation during a time of such uncertainty for without their support none of this would be possible.
We are pleased our compost can bring many tangible benefits to those within our society and can “continue to transform, improve and brighten our surrounding area as we aim to ‘green’ waste ground.”
