Want to learn about Community Composting in the South West?


Green credentials have received an fresh boost with the Down to becoming the regional training hub and demonstration site for community composting.

Local community group Down to Earth are one of 12 Hubs in a training network across England for the Community Composting for Local Food project. Down to Earth won the contract to deliver training, advice, equipment loan and support services to local groups in the area who are growing fresh fruit and vegetable and want to grow more sustainably by developing composting at their own sites.

The scheme was set up by the Community Composting Network with funding from the Big Lottery Local Food programme to become the country’s leading provider of composting support to local groups.
The free training courses and support will run in the following months supported by on-site advice visits and loans of composting machinery and equipment. Follow-up training on and off site will be offered to complete the training package.

Strouds composting ‘hub’ will be based at Bisley Community Composting site and will become focal point for the developing community composting community in the local area.

    •    To apply for a place on the courses or for more information about the courses and support please phone the Community Composting on 0114 258 0483 or email
