Description

Ever wondered what really happens to your waste?

Fair Food Challenge and Melbourne University’s Sustainable Campus team have partnered to organise a Follow Your Waste Tour.

The tour will take place over two days - this event is to register tickets for the first part: tour of Bulla Resource Recovery Centre

Please arrive at 8:30am for a 9am departure. The bus will leave on time and cannot wait for late attendees.

You might know where most of your food comes from, but have you wondered where it goes? Have you ever been curious to see what initiatives are being taken to minimise food waste in and around Melbourne University? Working backwards from one of the city's major resource recovery centre to the community garden to the Closed Loop Organics Digester underneath Union House, you can join these walking tours and see the various ways that your food waste is being managed for yourself.

Wear sensible, weather appropriate clothing (closed shoes are a must, and long sleeves and pants are advisable) as we will be visiting and walking around industrial sites.

The tour is free but bookings essential - if you book a ticket and can't make it, please let us know so we can pass on your ticket to someone else.

The second part of the tour will visit the community garden, compost sites, digester and farmers markets at the University of Melbourne on Wednesday August 9th, tickets for that tour are available here: campuswastetour.eventbrite.com.au

Please stay tuned for future events by following Fair Food Challenge on facebook and instagram and head along to our website fairfoodchallenge.com to find out more about our work.
