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 Tuesday and Thursday from 12-12:30pm. Order and pay in advance, we can’t take payment on site. 

Are you based in Southwark?

We currently have 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, our Manager: gemma@surreydocksfarm.org.uk

Please note we are only able to deliver within Southwark borough at present. From September 2020 we’ll be able to deliver to Lewisham borough but prices will have increased as we no longer have match funding.
