Compost Doctors' Training


Greenham Reach, Holcombe Rogus GoogleMap

If you are a keen gardener, vegetable grower or enthusiastic about environmental issues then why not join CAG Devon on Saturday 18th March for a free training event and become a Compost Doctor!

As a Compost Doctor you would attend community events and enthuse and inspire local people in Mid Devon to compost at home as part of the Community Action Groups Devon project (CAG Devon). This new scheme aims to support local people to reduce the amount of household waste in Tiverton and Mid Devon.

The training event will take place at Greenham Reach, near Holcombe Rogus, a stunning location and the home of three pioneering local growing projects. It will be led by expert composter and author Nicky Scott.

The day will be enjoyable, interactive and really hands on, giving people the knowledge and confidence to promote home composting in their communities. No previous experience is required, just enthusiasm and a commitment to spreading the word.

As well as taking part in the training, the new Compost Champions will have a chance to take a tour of the Greenham Reach site, receive a resource pack full of ideas and activities to take back to their communities, and enjoy a delicious lunch from locally grown produce.

CAG Devon is managed by Resource Futures and supported by Devon County Council and Mid Devon District Council.
