Two-year process seems beneficial as the zoo creates its own compost from leaves



THE Welsh Mountain Zoo takes another step towards achieving its sustainability and environmental goals.

Colwyn Bay Zoo has created its own compost from waste.

With a group of volunteers, the gardens and gardens team collected “tons” of fallen leaves all over the site; During the decomposition process, the leaf bags served as a refuge for the insects, also feeding on the waste.

Today, about two years later, and in recent weeks, the compost has become ready for use.

Dai Richardson, Gardens and Gardens Manager at Welsh Mountain Zoo, said: “Creating our own compost is an important part of our sustainability commitment. In doing so, we reuse tons of natural waste and create the perfect quality compost that will help our greenery to thrive and flourish.

“We’re really happy with the process to date and the hardware we’ve created and plan to increase production year on year.

“We already have some exciting plans in place to move our own compost production forward and hope to put those plans into action by the end of this year. ”

The compost will help nourish and strengthen the foliage in the zoo, much of it during planting.

The Welsh Mountain Zoo has announced that it will host a Halloween event on October 23 and 31. More details should be released soon. Search for Welsh Mountain Zoo on Facebook.
