Thank you to Dr Paul Lamble for a very informative presentation. It was great to be part of the discussion covering:
- The challenges facing open green spaces from climate change to playing surface conditions and usage levels;
- How compost can be used to make open spaces sustainable;
- A comparison of fields with compost amended soils versus unamended soils including:
- Drought resilience;
- Carrying capacity;
- Water demands; and
- Lifecycle costs (which also compares synthetic fields).
