Landtasia Organic Farms is demonstrating how Food Organics and Garden Organics (FOGO) and commercial food waste can be used to make a high quality humus rich compost suitable for use in organic food production.
Food and garden waste from the Palerang Council City to Soil collection is bought to our licensed composting site located between Braidwood and Bungendore on the Kings Highway. Each delivery is carefully hand sorted to remove any contamination. This takes a little time, but participants are very good at keeping contaminants out of the City to Soil collection. Once the material is sorted it enters our composting process.
Commercial food waste is delivered to the facility and carefully blended with other materials to create the perfect balance for composting.
It takes approximately 6 months for our compost to reach maturity.
Each batch of compost undergoes rigorous testing to ensure that it meets the AS4454 Australian Compost Standard and complies with the NSW Compost Regulations. Once the compost has passed all the regulatory tests, it is ready for use.
