Rocketeers - tidying the planet one apple core at at time

Morden Hall Park's Rocketeers
More excitement last week following the arrival of our very own A700 Rocket® composter! Imagine a compost bin with better looks and an attitude and you’ve got the Rocket Composter. Manufactured and installed by Tidy Planet, it is an impressive piece of kit that digests food waste, speedily turning it into usable compost in just two weeks. What’s more, it actually looks like a rocket!
Gwen, Tidy Planet’s master composter, was on hand to teach the new team of Rocketeers how to feed and take good care of the Rocket. It will be enjoying a tasty diet of fresh scraps and cooked leftover food (including meat and fish) from Morden Hall Park’s Riverside Café, as well as garden waste treats from the park. And if it's really good we even might let it have some leftover ice cream from the ice cream parlour in the stable yard when it opens following the renovation work.
