I have a mixed vegetable, fruit and flower allotment with three rainwater butts attached to my shed. Two compost bays completely reorganised since going on Charles’s course. We are in a valley next to the river Thames on sandy soil. Since taking over the allotment two years ago I have practiced no dig and added compost every year and it is making a huge difference. Since Charles’s course I’m now looking forward to being more effective with my sowing, planting and harvests. I feel revitalised and excited when working in the allotment and I even get excited about making compost, who knew that was possible!
