In Britain each Christmas, figures show that only 10% of Christmas trees are recycled.
Bowhouse is offering a free service to recycle Christmas trees by chipping it and then composting it. Once the compost is complete it will be used on the it on the plots and the land around Bowhouse on Balcaskie Esate. This process reintroduces the carbon stored in the tree back into the soil.
Trees should be brought (clear of all decorations) to Bowhouse and follow the signs for deliveries to the back of the building. Visitors will see some potato boxes creating a bay with a pile of greenery. People can simply add their tree to that pile to be recycled. Trees should be dropped off before 20th of January.
Based on the Balcaskie Estate in the East Neuk of Fife, Bowhouse opened as a makers hub for local food and drink producers in summer 2017, working to provide the missing link between farm and fork for producer and consumer. Its Market Weekends continue to attract thousands of visitors through the doors each month. The number of producers has continuously grown and now eight independent food businesses are permanently based at the venue: from Scotland the Bread’s organic mill to shellfish specialist, Langoustine the Box. 2019 saw the launch of the Mill House café at Bowhouse as well as the opening of the tap room at the East Neuk Organic Brewery.
Bowhouse Market Weekends will resume in March 2020.
