A leaf above the rest at Red House

Autumn colour close up

We’ll be placing bags in strategic places around the Red House garden, while you’re out and about enjoying the crisp autumn weather with a cup of tea, why not grab a handful of leaves for us? We’ll have colourful spades to help the kids out and it’s all for a good cause.

Nothing goes to waste here at Red House. The collected leaves will go straight into our composting system to be broken down into soil full of nutrients we can use for spring time planting.
