Our *wonderful* supporting partner Good Life Permaculture are working with the City of Hobart to run a series of *free* compost workshops to support you to compost your food waste at home and keep it out of landfill where it becomes a pollutant.
Why compost? Because…. did you know that food waste comprises nearly half of the rubbish in an average household rubbish bin and that up to (and over) 40% of landfills across Australia consist of pure food waste. Yuck! Once in landfill, food waste undergoes anaerobic decomposition (because of the lack of oxygen) and generates methane. When released into the atmosphere, methane is 25 times more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.
So by composting your food waste you’re diverting it from landfill and transforming it into nutrient-dense compost to obtain a yield and produce no waste. Perfect for growing a great veggie patch in your own home or community garden!
