Tomorrow we’ll be liveblogging from the Compost Celebration and Giveaway in Willesden.

As part of compost awareness month, West London Waste have teamed up with Brent Council’s waste and recycling partner, Veolia, to host this year’s giveaway.

We’ll be speaking to experts in Roundwood Park to get tips on composting, food recycling and reducing food waste at home.

10 tonnes of compost is due to be delivered and residents will be able to take home up to 100 litres free- but don’t forget to bring your spade!

Field to Fork, a North West London based cooperative committed to sustainable food production, will also be talking to us about their local, seasonal produce and plans to engage with the community by offering jobs and training to local people.
