Spread­ing no-waste mantra

Augusta Margaret River Times - - News - Therese Col­man

Fair Har­vest will bring their an­nual anti-waste fes­ti­val back for 2017. This year’s Fes­ti­val of No Waste will of­fer stall­hold­ers and pa­trons an in­sight into re­duc­ing hu­man-pro­duced waste in ev­ery­day life.

The event is in its sixth year and each fes­ti­val fo­cuses on one of the 12 prin­ci­ples of per­ma­cul­ture.

Or­gan­iser Jodie Lane said waste was a fac­tor for ev­ery­one.

“Waste is a huge sub­ject that fil­ters through into just about ev­ery as­pect of our lives,” she said

“Food of course is a huge sub­ject and in­cludes ev­ery­thing from deal­ing with left­overs, to where food waste goes, us­ing less dis­pos­able prod­ucts in the kitchen, and not buy­ing food pack­aged in ma­te­rial that will head straight to land­fill.”

Ms Lane said the fes­ti­val would fo­cus on the pos­i­tive ways peo­ple could com­bat waste such as up- cy­cling cloth­ing, mak­ing wax food wrap and build­ing a worm farm.

There are no costs for hold­ing a stall but a door charge will help cover costs to­wards a com­post­ing toi­let for fu­ture events, Ms Lane said. The Fes­ti­val of No Waste will be held at 426 Carters Road on Novem­ber 26 from 10am.

En­try is $20 adults, $5 chil­dren. Con­tact Ms Lane via info@fairhar­vest.com.au or phone 9758 8582.
