The things we do for science :)

The events compostables were taken by Joan Park Community Gardens which were shredded and layered into a compost bed for scientific research. A Griffith University Intern will be monitoring the breakdown of the compostables over the next few months.

The outcome of this research will determine the viability of composting with community gardens compared to an industrial composting company. Should this system work satisfactorily the social & community benefits of this relationship from a sustainable event management perspective far out way the easy alternative. Also this system will reduce the waste cartage & processing costs which can be diverted to the community.
