Masters of the compost!
Spreading the green message
A group of Edinburgh residents are not just spreading the green message, they are showing others how it’s done.
The Changeworks Master Composter project has lots of newly trained and established volunteers eager to share their knowledge of home composting with their neighbours and with local community groups.
If you are new to composting or you’ve been at it for a while but don’t feel it’s been very successful, contact the project for some free friendly advice. They would also be delighted to deliver a talk or workshop to interested groups.
If you are a home composter who is interested in spreading the word – as well as the compost – then contact the team to find out how you can get involved.
New recruit, Jocelyn Lockhart of The Grange, Edinburgh, said: “I started volunteering with Changeworks last year and I’ve found it’s been a great project to be involved in. I’ve learnt lots, gained a lot of confidence and met some lovely people.
“Since my training I’ve manned stalls, visited people in their garden and had a few composting events of my own. It’s been a great opportunity to help reduce the waste going to landfill from Edinburgh.”
