Hackney Council is offering support for four groups in the borough to set up their own community composting scheme by spring 2012.
The project, in partnership with the London Community Resource Network and environmental charity ecoACTIVE, will help community groups manage their garden and food waste to create compost for use by residents.
Applications for funding is open until 30 January 2012 to local voluntary, community or school groups. The funding will include a free set of composting units; storage for woodchip and kitchen caddies; information manuals and promotional materials for the community; and a training workshop for participants featuring activities for children.
