Recycling & Gardening

Growing in London is not second best and you can grow in the most unlikely places; months later you’ll be harvesting your home-grown produce. Compared to supermarket produce your doorstep fruit and veg will be fresher, tastier and more nutritious with a higher concentration of trace elements.

We can design an organic teaching garden and recycling system that fully utilises your space and facilities. We’ll take into account the size, aspect and micro-climate of your site. You’ll get the support and guidance you need to make your organic garden grow.

Organic garden

Becoming an organic farmer in the city is not as difficult as you think. We can give you the background to understand the issues and design a full-size teaching garden to incorporate important concepts such as:

  • Crop rotation
  • Organic gardening practice – growing herbs, vegetables and soft fruit
  • Sustainability

An efficient recycling and growing system will enhance the sustainability and self-sufficiency of your organisation or home.


Waste collection services vary considerably across the country so the more you can recycle yourself, the better. We can explain which waste to compost – the ‘good waste’ - and which waste doesn’t compost.


Using kitchen waste such as teabags, kitchen towels and peelings you have the ‘fuel’ to create a fertile and productive growing place. In this case your output is ‘humus’ - not the dip but a very rich type of soil to boost the growth of your fruit and veg.

Worm compost

A wormery is essential for your modern organic garden. Once it is up and running you will produce ‘vermi-compost’ for your fruit and veg and ‘worm tea’ - a highly nutritious drink for flowers.

Green manure

Another useful ‘garden fuel’ is produced from Russian comfrey – a crop that can be dug back into the soil.
