The months of wet, wet weather may not have dampened our spirits – but they have slowed down work on the skip site at Levenshulme and District Allotments.
We snatched a dry day in November, and the New Year has started with two volunteer weekends in a row. So now that the clearance of the Skip and Recycling site is complete, the next step is to build the path that will lead to the recycling bays.
The finished area will allow waste from allotment plots to be separated into potentially re-usable materials. Green waste can rot down, and branches and bracken be shreaded into mulch; Timber can be re-used for minor repairs to plot sheds and fences.
We hope that an increase in recycling of materials will reduce the use of the skip, and limit the number of times it will need to be emptied.
The next day for action is 3rd February, meeting at 11am at the Skip Site – here marked with a “1″.
