Suppliers

‘Suppliers’ provide all the needs of our local food system, including all farming inputs (such as water, seed, sunlight, biodiversity, land, nutrients, chemicals, labour and experience) and also things like technology, tools and business systems.

Below you’ll find every local resource we currently know about that will help you as an Supplier – or as someone seeking to grow your own knowledge around our local supply system.

Food South Australia

Food South Australia

MANAGING FOOD WASTE

Which Bin?

Which Bin?

The SA Government’s excellent Which Bin? campaign help residents untangle what waste goes in which bin.

It’s well worth following the Which Bin? Facebook page, where common recycling, organics and landfill questions are regularly answered and demystified.

Share Waste

ShareWaste

ShareWaste is a volunteer-run international community network and a free app that connects people through urban composting. It helps people who would like to compost their green scraps (rather than chuck them in the bin) connect with neighbours who have composting bins, worm farms or chooks and are willing to accept their waste. Membership is free.

As you can see below, the Share Waste map includes many compost piles and chook yards across Adelaide.
