This event is part of out Composting for the Future campaign, a way for us to spark Glasgow’s communities’ involvement in composting. Led by the Food and Climate Action project team, we want to work with communities to identify what needs to change with our city’s current food-waste recycling system, explore alternative models to make composting easier and more effective, and support community groups to set these up.
