FARMERS: ALI & PHIL - Mixed vegetables & amazing compost SAMFORD VALLEY
Ali and Phil are young farmers operating a closed loop cycle turning cafe waste into biologically diverse compost and nutrient dense food.
Museum of Brisbane have partnered with Food Connect to offer these tours. Food Connect work to connect a community that values a fair, healthy and flourishing food culture, where food and the work of those who grow, produce, process, transport and distribute it are recognised and rewarded fairly. At Food Connect, local actually means local: their fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy products and bakery items travel no more than 400 kilometres before getting to your door, and they guarantee superior quality, freshness and a reduced impact on the environment.
