The Celebration of Soil group will also be running a Soil and Compost Dr training day on Saturday 17th March 2018, at Knightshayes just outside of Tiverton. As a Soil and Compost Dr you might help someone who wants to compost for the first time, or perhaps support someone who has lapsed and needs advice or encouragement. The soil element of the training day means that you’ll be able to help people really understand their garden. You could do any of the following:
  • Attend local community events
  • Give practical demonstrations or set up a demonstration site
  • Write articles for local newsletters, newspapers, magazines, web or social media
  • Give talks to local groups
