This interactive discussion will explore real-life examples from Melbourne communities successfully composting in high-rise apartments, stand-alone houses, offices and hospitality; demonstrating how people in all living and working spaces can take action towards zero emissions! We will explore different composting technologies and methods, traps to avoid, and the surprising benefits (from community building to connecting to nature) that result from composting. This action-inspiring discussion will offer a forum for you to explore how to personally enact these real-world solutions and begin your own compost revolution!
