Horse Manure in a Vegan Garden
I found last Friday's feature on GW about an ex-Michellin starred chef, now vegan, growing his own vegetables very interesting. I was interested to see how conscious his approach was to gardening as you would expect from a vegan who eats well. What slightly worried me however (as a vegan myself) was that he was using manure (an animal product) to grow his vegetables. Has anyone found a way round this particular dilemma? I use sea weed collected from the beach & add this to my compost bin, & I have heard a lecturer at plumpton agricultural college in sussex advising to start raised beds by layering seaweed, vegetable matter & straw into the beds to get a really good start to vegetables. I am just wondering what other vegans do?
