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.

 

We have a range of options available

Please come to the Farm shop which is open seven days a week between 10am-1pm and 2pm-4pm to let us know you are here to collect or bag up the manure to take away. You can also pay in our shop or make a donation.

We have wheelbarrows, gloves, and shovels available to borrow if needed. We recommend wearing suitable closed footwear when accessing the muck heap.

  • Small bags of manure, pre-bagged – £2.50 each (when available*)
  • Small bags of manure, bagged yourself – a donation to the Farm would be greatly appreciated (you are welcome to bring your own bags if you prefer)

Are you based in Southwark?

We currently have some funding through Southwark Council’s Cleaner Greener Safer programme to help deliver ton bags of our manure to charities and community groups in the borough of Southwark. This involves us working with a local company who come with an eight wheel grab lorry to collect the manure and deliver it. The company can do a maximum of three deliveries at a time. These ton bags are priced at a subsidised rate of £15 per bag.

If you can take a minimum of four ton bags and can take delivery from a large vehicle please do get in touch with us by emailing Bex, our Green Mentor: rebecca@surreydocksfarm.org.uk

 

*We are a small staff team and rely mostly on volunteers to fill the small bags of manure and the ton bags so do let us know if you would like a big order so we have a good amount of time to fill the bags.
