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 second part: Walking tour of University of Melbourne's Parkville campus waste system

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? This tour will visit the community garden, the Closed Loop Organics Digester underneath Union House and the University of Melbourne Farmers Market so you can see the various ways that your food waste is being managed on campus.

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. Please bring water to drink along the way.

Please arrive promptly at North Court at 8:30am for an 8:45 departure. Meet in the middle of North Court, Union House.

Tour schedule:

9am – Trinity College waste management
9:45am – Begin walk to community garden
10am – Commence tour of community garden
10:45 – Begin walk to Union House
11am – Commence tour of Union House
12am – Finish at farmers markets

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 first part of the tour will visit the Bulla waste and recovery centre on Tuesday the 8th of August, tickets for that tour are available here: bullawastetour.eventbrite.com.au
