I know its only relevant to Guildford Residents - non guildfordians might want to check your local council';s websites - I'm sure there must be other councils doing similar things across the country at this time of year.
Date/Time: Saturday 9 May 2009 - 11am to 2pm
Location: Burchatts Farm Barn, London Road, Guildford, GU1 1TU
Free compost and compost bins available to Guildford Borough residents while stocks last!
I went last year and got a free compost bin plus a free bag of compost. Had to queue for about 45 minutes though - so get there early if you are interested.

Probably the biggest composting event in the country! Compost Heaven offers expert advice and demonstrations of composting and wormeries. You can get your secateurs sharpened for free, make a willow tepee for your beans and recycle hand tools. See the bee-keeping, solar energy and wood fuels demos and visit Fairtrade food and craft stall.
There's loads of free nature crafts for children, a fantastic band and juggler and even free homemade cake!
The Grow Your Own schools competition entries will be judged on the day. You'll be inspired by what you could grow in an old wellie!
The Royal Horticultural Society, Friends of the Earth, Guildford Environmental Forum, Surrey Wildlife Trust and Dr Energy will all be there. Compost Heaven is the most fun you can have being green this year!
