Looking for Compost Mentors!

I work for a charity based in Redruth called Cornwall Waste Action, which is involved with a wide range of environmental activities involving local communities. We are currently running a project called "Compost Mentors", which aims at encouraging more people to compost their kitchen and garden waste at home, and to grow their own food. The mentors start with receiving a free compost bin and attending a free compost workshop, before they begin to encourage and support members of their community to start composting. You can read more about it on our website here: http://www.cornwallwasteaction.org.uk/what-we-do/ccfc-compost-mentors/

We have just started to promote the project in the Bodmin area, which is our next target town (it will be closely followed by Liskeard and Launceston). We have successfully run the project in Falmouth, Penzance, Truro, St Austell and Newquay in 2009-2010, and are now really looking forward to getting more people composting and growing their own food in the Bodmin area.

I was wondering if you may be able to help us find mentors - or may want to become one yourself? Maybe you could allow me to attend your next meeting and talk to your group? This would be a great way to introduce the project, and hopefully enthuse some members of your group about it.
Please let me know if this would be possible. Maybe you could also forward some information about the project to your network?

Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to offer us in recruiting Compost Mentors!

I look forward to hearing from you.
