Event Description

22nd April Workshop - Easy Ways to Reduce Food Waste Workshop 

In this workshop, Anne will be sharing lots of practical tips and creative ways to save money and reduce your kitchen waste to live more sustainably including:

  • Foods to regrow from kitchen scraps so you can grow plants for free;
  • Using 100% of your food (how to use skin, seeds, leaves and flesh);
  • What to do with sprouting potatoes and UFO’s (Unidentified Food Objects!)
  • Smart shopping habits and menu planning;
  • Ways to create a waste-free kitchen and close the loop on cycling nutrients back to the garden;
  • Packaging-free food and how to upcycle packaging;
  • Easy, quick recipes including ‘Clean out the Fridge Soup’;

BYO a food you don’t know how to use or packaging you often throw out. We’ll brainstorm useful ways to reduce food waste together!

Cost: $5 Non-Members, Gold coin for Members, Free to Regular Volunteers

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
