LET IT GROW | Part 9 | Composting
Our #GrowSustainableFood Series delivered directly from the Sustainable Table is designed to help you do just that – grow sustainable food at home. No matter where you live or what your space, we want to empower you to get growing, to nurture and to enjoy. Here we give you the tools you need to commence. All you need is a big fat ‘yes I can’ attitude!
In Australia, 8.2 million tonnes of food waste is generated each year, most of which ends up in landfill. That equates to around 50% of the rubbish that Australians put in their rubbish bins… 50%!
In the oxygen-starved environment of landfill, this buried waste produces methane, a gas which has 25 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide…
For every tonne of food diverted from landfill, almost a tonne of greenhouse gas is prevented from entering the atmosphere, not to mention all the nutrients that are saved and returned to our earth to help out collective gardens grow.

Great! It’s time that you learn to compost. Watch this short clip from none-other than Costa Georgiadis!
