Today was a good day.

Waverley Council, wecompost and farmer John Fairley of Country Valley Dairy, along with Bondi businesses are working together to cut food waste, cut business costs and to grow soil on a farm.  wecompost is a joint project involving myself, Jess Miller and Closed Loop.

Our project to take carbon pollution out of Earth’s atmosphere started when we installed the big composter at Bondi Pavilion.

Food waste will be composted and taken to grow soil on a farm at Picton.

We stop new pollution by stopping the food waste going to landfill.

We take out existing pollution by growing soil with the compost.  When soil grows it takes carbon out of the air.

The new plants will also cool the dairy cows and make them more comfortable, and will reduce the farmer’s use of oil and gas based fertilizers and other costs.

We’ll also reduce costs for the cafes using the system.

Some days feel good deep inside and this is one of them.

More details soon.

May joy be with you,
