We're delighted that Bruton Town Council has adopted recommendations made by the Climate and Ecological Core Working Group. Its latest allotment renewal notice states:
"Please note that the Council prohibits the use of Glyphosate and similar herbicides / pesticides on its land including the raised beds; encourages allotment holders to follow organic principles; bans use of peat-based compost; supports sharing of excess produce and supports events / workshops to promote food-growing".
There's information for Council's and land managers on alternatives to pesticides here.
There's a useful guide to gardening without pesticides focusing on specific pests here.
