Compost Week Celebrations & Cocktails

Yes, there is an International Compost Week and Sydney's Eastern Suburbs is arguably where the most fun and  celebrations was had. To kick it off on Saturday 30 April six local community groups got together and invited all their neighbours and friends to come and learn how to compost and wormfarm and create a more sustainable future.

Over 120 people participated in these events run by volunteers in what was demonstration of true community spirit. Well done to these groups and individuals which included the crew at; 241 Bondi Rd Community Garden, Coogee Public School Sustainability Committee, Coogee Sustainability Street, residents of the Apartment block Perouse St and Rose Bay Sustainability Street and Clovelly Child Care Centre.

To get everyone talking and for a bit of fun after the workshops, possibly the first ever “Compost Cocktails” was held at Bondi FM complete with “Wormtini’s" and “Pina Composta’s”.

They seemed to loosen up creativity in the compost bin name game competition with names such as; Bin-a-licious, Veginia, Sir Bin-a-lot, Baby got Trash and Dirty Harry.

Well done to Kerry for winning, and Cnr Wy Kynak for the challenging task of judging the entries. Also, well done to James for guessing the correct number of sour worms in a jar competition.

This was also an opportunity to launch the new on-line compost and wormfarm tutorial and quiz visit www.compostrevolution.com.au  try it out and be a part of the Compost Revolution

 

Creative Cooking .. and avoiding food waste

Also a part of Compost week, focusing on avoiding food waste before it even gets to the compost, Tony Bilson “Godfather of Australian Cuisine” held a cooking workshop with a difference at Our Big Kitchen for 35 lucky people on Monday 2 May.

It’s staggering that one in five shopping bags full of food is thrown away in Australia - with the average household wasting $1,036 worth of food a year.

The workshop was about avoiding food waste through learning how to cook creatively. Tony got everyone involved in preparing the meal whilst he gave out handy tips and shared some interesting stories. At the end of the workshops everyone sat down together to share meal and of course helped with the washing up.

Our Big Kitchen is a community kitchen in Bondi to help those in need and for everyone to use. The Bilson’s kindly donated their fee to the kitchen.
