We over ordered slightly on the straw, so here’s some of our construction waste going to a good home. Andrew and Tim came and took away about 80 bales of straw. They’ll use it for animal bedding less than a mile from where it was grown. We’ve kept a bit back for the chooks, to make a target for George to shoot arrows at, and some for a friend’s allotment. All in all, a very different picture from the normal picture. The UK construction industry is said to be responsible for 40% of all UK waste. Not here. Even the half round off cuts from the larch cladding have been used as fire wood. And the trimmings from the ends of boards have been turned into dormice boxes (thanks to WWOOFers Katie and Kate).
