Join the North London Organic Gardeners for their February meeting and talk with speaker Ian Tinton on Wool compost and remin volcanic dust.
Wool compost is a peat free, natural, renewable and sustainable compost option, and the remin volcanic rock dust a soil and compost regenerator which is Soil Association approved and very popular with organic gardeners.
Ian works with these products four days a week as a gardener, and distributes them on the other three! He hopes to give practical insight into using both products.
