As part of our Keep Growing campaign we’ve dropped compost at strategic points around Tower Hamlets for you to use! Please find the nearest soil pick up to you and take a bag or bucket and something to scoop with (you can use a mug if you don’t have a trowel). The soil will be delivered during the day on Friday 26th June, it should all be in place by the afternoon.
Please help yourself to as much as you need for your seedlings, but leave plenty for others as well – lots of us are having trouble getting hold of soil at the moment. Please be careful to maintain social distancing of 2 metres or more if others are collecting compost at the same time.If you reach a soil drop and it is empty please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org – we will keep this page updated to let you know what is left.
