Food for our little friends — Thanks for the food scraps which are now not going to land­fill and so redu­cing the pro­duc­tion of harm­ful green­house gasses, espe­cially meth­ane.  If you would like some worm cast­ings for your garden you can leave a buck­et or bag at the rect­ory with your details.  Our little fer­til­izer factor­ies have been doing a won­der­ful job and the fruit of their labours is now avail­able.
