Narda Lagoon FOGO planting day
Narda Lagoon FOGO trial celebrations event
5 April 2022
The FOGO (Food Organics Garden Organics) Trial has generated 270 tonnes of food organic and garden organic waste from the green lidded bins which equates to the weight of 54 elephants.
The mid trial celebrations were postponed due to the floods in February, and a small celebration was held in Laidley at the Narda Lagoon Park in April. The community-made FOGO soil conditioner was used to plant natives along the playground for the community.
The trial has produced amazing outcomes thus far which includes;
- Reduction of general bin waste by 50% in the trial areas
- Contamination levels have been kept to under 2%
- The soil conditioner has been tested to meet Australian Standards (AS4454)
