There was some good news last week! For a while, we’ve been looking for a supplier of shredded paper for our Compost Collective. Gawler Community House have been supplying some, but they don’t produce a lot ands what they do produce is shared with some other people. So I was stoked the other day when I asked at UCare in Gawler if they had any? The answer was YES and how much they had was a real surprise! It took me two trips in Marlon’s car to transport all of it!
They don’t shred paperwork weekly, so in the future, it will come in big lots as its ready.
A little of the paper gets in incorporated into our Bokashi composting, and worm farming. The rest gets given to Uncle Rob’s Worm Farm where it Rob incorporates it into his worm farming and composting systems.
UCare are Gawler legends, helping so many folks with their free food distribution, no interest loans and so many other social services for those in need. They have a pretty good Op Shop too! On tight weeks, in between harvests, we go there to get a box of fresh veggies, bread and bits and pieces. Its all part of being part of a community, its great to be able to receive as well as give. They’re located in the old church opposite to Foodland
