It is no secret that the STIGA team love to offer all the help they can to good causes all over the UK, but local schemes in the South West are especially close to their hearts.
So when ‘The Marldon Community Composting Group’ in Devon mentioned that they needed something to help with their cutting and chopping, the team jumped at the chance to offer one of their STIGA CS 750 chainsaws with plenty of bite for this worthwhile scheme.
The ‘Marldon Community Composting’ scheme is intent on promoting home composting and offers a place where locals can take their bulky garden waste for it to be composted into usable garden soil conditioner. It is well known that garden waste is a valuable resource and should be utilised as sustainably as possible. But also from a wellbeing standpoint, research shows that the social benefits seen through groups such as this help to reinforce social ties and offer a sense of belonging to a broader community.
Since its launch in 2021, the composting group has been growing steadily and now has eight members, one of whom is very knowledgeable on environmental issues as he previously worked for Teignbridge Council as an environment and recycling officer.
After obtaining permission from a local farmer to use land for the scheme, the team are busy constructing the pens on the site and are hoping to be fully functional in March 2024.
