Time: 10.00 until 15.00 but no problem if you can only make part of the day.
Planting site: Within the deer-fenced area to the north of the Nomansland Farm (see attached map) and some hedgerow planting.
Where to meet: At the planting site.
Parking: There’s limited parking at the planting site. Best to park at Nomansland Common car park (shown on the attached map). If several of you arrive at that car park by 10.00, you could get into just one or two cars for transfer to the planting site. Alternatively, walk along Ferrers Lane to the cross-roads with the B651 and take the public bridleway signed opposite.
Refreshments: Hot drinks will be available but please bring your own snacks and cold drinks.
Loos: At the junction of the public bridleway and Coleman Green Lane.
Tools: Will be provided.
What to wear: Gloves, rugged waterproof footwear, plenty of layers and waterproofs.
It is now possible to use coffee cups which go into the compost bin!
The problem? Conventional takeaway packaging uses a mix of materials (plastic, card, films, metals). For example, conventional coffee cups are made of card lined with plastic. Separately, plastic and card are easy to recycle. But combined, the card contaminates the plastics recycling and the plastic contaminates the card recycling. Then in use, add in the food inevitable residues, and the result is a huge recycling problem.
The solution? Compostable packaging. If the whole package, including all the materials, can be recycled with food waste, there is no issue. No contamination, no sorting. Vegware’s compostable cups are made from plants, not plastic, and can be recycled along with their compostable lids with food waste.
