Our vegan gardening podcast – as heard on Roots And All

Posted on

We’re keen to spread the word about our compost, so jumped at the chance of a vegan gardening podcast!

Our vegan credentials

We don’t add any animal products or manure to our vegan composts. Instead we use a blend of vegetable-based nutrients and vermiculite, bark, coir and sterilized loam. This means we’re well-placed to serve the needs of vegans who want to ensure their gardening is animal-free too. We’re also accredited by The Vegan Society.

As heard on Roots And All


The horticulturist Sarah Wilson asked if we’d like to be interviewed for a ‘budcast’ about our compost. This is like a mini-podcast that appears on her gardening blog and podcast site Roots and All. We were honoured, given past interviewees included such vegan gardening heroes as Matthew Appleby and Cleve West.

You can hear the full budcast by following the link and pressing the play button:
