Manure

As a city farm we produce lots of animal waste which goes onto our muck heap. This then rots down for about a year, where it is turned into wonderful well-rotted manure which is perfect for adding fertility to your garden.

This manure is available for you to use in your gardens, balconies and allotments, as well as for community projects and more.

We do not use any horrible pesticides or fertilisers here at the Farm. Our animal waste is mixed with hay and straw.

 

Accessing manure while the Farm is closed

We are currently closed to visitors but do have a very small team of volunteers on site who are bagging up manure for sale. When available this is added to our online Gardening Shop ready for collection on Sunday from 11am-11:20am. Please order and pay in advance, we can’t take payment on site. 

 

Are you based in Southwark or Lewisham?

If you are based in Southwark or Lewisham you can access our manure for your community garden, organisation or allotment. This involves us working with a local haulier company who come with an eight wheel grab lorry to collect the manure and deliver it. The company can do a maximum of two deliveries at a time, which means to make the trips viable we need to drop off a minimum of six ton bags per location. The lorry can take fifteen ton bags per delivery. Our ton bags of manure are now priced at £25 per bag. If you can take a minimum of six ton bags and your site has access for a large vehicle to drop off, please do get in touch with us by emailing, our Green Mentor: rebecca@surreydocksfarm.org.uk

Someone will need to be onsite to meet the driver to deliver the bags.

Please be aware we are a small staff team who rely on the help of many of our volunteers to get the manure ready to go out to the community so you will need to be flexible on delivery dates.

Please note the haulage company cannot deliver outside these areas.
