Composting and Goodgym come to Bath Quakers’ burial ground

Susan Tomes writes to report all action at the Burial Ground. There’s a new composting area with three large wooden composting bins: one for new green waste; one for waste in the process of becoming compost; and one ready to use as compost. There’s also a small black bin for perennial weeds like bindweed and ground elder.

Spot the difference from a year ago…

Meanwhile a small group of volunteers from Goodgym – the innovative and successful running while doing good project – came to help out at the burial garden – see their report here.

Founded by Ivo Gormley and others, Goodgym is a community of runners that combine getting fit with doing good. “We stop off on our runs to do physical tasks for community organisations and to support isolated older people with social visits and one-off tasks they can’t do on their own. It’s a great way to get fit, meet new people and do some good.” More info here
Beats going to the gym.
