City Harvest is a collective of dedicated industry professionals who created a practical solution to address food waste.
Under the City Harvest program, restaurants and cafes are encouraged to compost food waste rather than sending it to landfill. City Harvest collects this compost for use in a series of vegetable gardens established across inner-city rooftops and public spaces.
These gardens are managed and tended to by disadvantaged individuals who are given horticulture training and the chance to gain valuable skills for use in future employment and their communities. Fresh produce from these gardens is supplied back to participating restaurants, creating produce from waste and effectively closing the food cycle.
