The Brisbane City Council is dedicated to helping residents turn their kitchen scraps into nutrients for soil for more sustainable communities. They have partnered with several community gardens and have been giving free workshops.

In The Gap and elsewhere, sustainable gardening is rapidly gaining a foothold in many home gardens as residents join the community’s efforts to reduce waste, improve one’s carbon footprint, and lead a green lifestyle.
