Volunteers and members of the public came together to construct a compost bin in Bromley on Monday.
The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) put on an event at the Whitehall Recreation Ground, as part of the charity’s Big Green Weekend.
Members of the local community joined volunteers in working on completing the build of their three bay compost bin, a compost bin with three parts: one for filling, one for composting and one full of compost ready for the garden.
This was Whitehall Green Gym’s first project since the group launched in July 2015.
They also had the task of removing a range of non-native plants to help local varieties flourish, before preparing the ground to make room for the growth of native hedgerow species later in the year.
Alaina O’Donoghue, Bromley Green Gym Project Officer said: “Our Whitehall Green Gym event was a huge success.
“I can’t thank the volunteers and members of the local community enough for their hard work and dedication.
“The volunteers that joined as part of our Big Green Weekend really made a difference – it was a great example of people getting stuck in to create a better outdoor community space for everyone.”
TCV is a national charity established in 1959 with 11,000 volunteers each year across the country. TCV volunteers work to improve the health and wellbeing of local communities including in Bromley, whilst transforming outdoor spaces.
