Dr. Brook Clinton started Capital Scraps in late 2019, out of a desire to show the full climate benefits from high-efficiency composting:
"Many people, especially in Canberra, have experience with backyard composting. But backyard composting is not as easy as some make out. It's actually much more effective for us to combine resources across our community. That's when composting gets really interesting! Not only do the complex interactions between thousands of species literally heat up, the molecular transformations and the environmental outcomes that come from this enhanced activity are truly wondrous."
Dr. Clinton has the support of a dedicated team, and is forever grateful to the Inner North community of Canberra for supporting this super efficient urban composting. We're now looking to take this climate saving activity to other parts of Canberra, and share new knowledge about the benefits of composting wider still.
We're continually coming up with new ways that people can get involved, from saving scraps and subscribing to our pickup service, to occassional volunteering (we make leaf raking fun!), to community events. Watch this space or follow us on Facebook or Instragram to see the journey unfold.
