Green team gets planting

October 11, 2011

It was a nine-to-five day with a difference last month when the Local Generation team swapped computer screens for gardening gloves.  That’s how long it took ten teammates to put in 8,000 green and glossy sedum plants around two-thirds of the bund (the two-metre high clay and soil barrier around the plant’s tanks).  There’s not much to show for it yet, (other than a few aching muscles) but in two years time the plants will grow into an attractive and weed-resistant green ‘coat’ for the bund.  All part of Local Generation’s green-fingered approach to its Anaerobic Digestion (AD) site in March.
