Assisting humanitarian entrants to grow their own
For the last month I have been helping some of Tasmania's new residents learn about making compost and acquiring the ingredients needed. Using vehicles and trailers provided by Amal Muhamud, a community worker who works for Colony 47's settlement grants program.
Most weeks my day starts with picking up a vehicle and trailer from New town, meeting the families I will be assisting, saying no to cups of tea (don't like hot beverages), then together we drive out to Brighton where we collect stable tailings from massive steaming piles.
