Compost! at Kew

Want to know more about compost? Then The Arboretum Trust, Kew at Castle Howard, near York, is the place to be. Tomorrow, Saturday 8 August, at 4pm, when their Discovery Lecture is entitled ‘Captivating Compost!’

Want to know more about compost and Compost! The (mini-)Musical? Then The Arboretum Trust, Kew at Castle Howard is also the place to be. For the foreseeable future.

How come? Well, the Education Development Officer there, Dr Katherine Forsey, invited me to put together a display for their Visitor Centre. Which you can see below. Along with Katherine and me.

The shop in the Visitor Centre now stocks my Compost! The (mini-)Musical Teaching Pack, so you can have a look at it there, and buy your copy.

If you’ve never been to Kew at Castle Howard, you’ve been missing a real treat. The arboretum there covers 150 acres, and includes a glorious lake and rolling countryside. A very inspiring place to be. I thoroughly recommend it – and their Discovery Lectures, which are open to all. (Indeed, I presented their first ever Discovery Lecture, which was a moth night, jointly put on with Dr Dave Chesmore of the University of York. Find out more about our Moth Nights.)

Oh, and if you’re a teacher, check out their excellent programme of training in a wide range of curriculum-linked outdoor activities, and their schools visits, all run by Katherine Forsey (education@kewatch.co.uk).

The Trust has a fantastic outdoor classroom (see below), and a great range of education options.
