We're looking for local householders with kitchen scraps!
The idea is to work together to reduce the amount of food waste ending up in our landfills, and create a free source of rich, organic compost for our local community garden.
Households, cafes and pre-schools from across the region are involved in the Crusade and we are aiming to collectively divert more than 5 tonnes of organic waste from landfill every year.
If you're lacking space, resources or motivation to create a garden at home, you can still keep your green thumbs by getting involved with one of the many local community gardens across the MidCoast region.
Check the list below to find your nearest community garden. You can contact them to register as a Compost Crusader and for details on other ways to get involved.
