Alys in Retirement

Alys, the Yalding Organic Gardens Rolypig composter is hoping for a safe and secure home in her well-deserved retirement.

Having spent many years introducing children to hands-on composting; Alys’ sides had finally given-way and she had been retired into a quiet corner, to rest. However, with the recently announced closure of the Gardens, her future is no-longer secure.

As a direct response to the Gardens’ closure; the Friends of Yalding Organic Gardens have been formed, with the aim of bringing-together all those who have a love of and an interest in the Gardens; to show their support; to explore the possibilities for the Gardens’ future, and to work towards securing a sound and sustainable future for them – and of course, a comfortable retirement home for Alys.
