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

Duration 2 hours. Bookings are NOT required.

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.

This site exists for you - make the most if it!

BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.


What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
