Colin Glen Allotments

Natural World Products Community Allotment Space

As part of New Leaf Compost 'No Dig November ', producer of the peat free compost 'Natural World Products ' took over an allotment space at Colin Glen Allotments in Belfast. To tackle the currently over grown space we used the no dig method of laying cardboard and compost on top of the grass / weeds. We demonstrated this technique via a workshop offered to current plot holders at the site.

Sharon ( Head of ESG & Community Outreach ) from Natural World Products made one bed for garlic and onions by removing the grass sods ,spreading a bag of compost and planting directly.

The participants at our No-Dig Workshop learnt the methods of no-dig gardening using peat free New Leaf Compost.
