Yandina Community Gardens Food Waste Loop program has been operating for just over a month and we couldn’t be happier with the impact we’ve had already!

We have diverted over 1.25 tonnes of waste, and saved over 2,400kg of C02-e emissions from our beautiful environment.

We have 10 businesses onboard who are happily separating their waste, and redirecting it for a greater purpose! We are so happy we are able to utilise this resource rather than it end up wasted in landfill.

Our hot compost piles are cooking, we are feeding our worms a variety of great scraps, and it’s warming up for the black soldier larvae. Check out a few photos from the past month.
