Composting for Beginners Workshop

Since Bandstand Beds Association (BBA) began we’ve had a long-held ambition to compost all our garden waste.

Thanks to funding from The National Lottery Community Fund and in-kind support from Lambeth Council in August worked started on installing three composting bays on the site adjacent to our garden. Now complete, we will be using these new bays for this composting for beginners workshop with Dan Priddle.

Dan teaches permaculture and no-dig gardening. His interests are in food growing and wildlife habitat in the urban environment, and he lives in South London.

In this workshop Dan will cover the basics of composting to create a good quality soil enhancer for the garden. He will also share tips on organic matter that is good to add to our compost bays and things that should be avoided.

This workshop is open to everyone over the age of 16*.

Cost? £10 donation or pay what you can afford.

Booking in advance necessary. To reserve a place on this workshop please email

*Note: Anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. For more information about BBA safeguarding click on this link.
