Colleen Patrick-Gourdeau is back in another insightful episode. This time, Toni and Michelle had her on as a guest to discuss composting 101 as a beautiful way of making sure our food waste doesn't go to waste.
Be the first to know when we release new podcast episodes and get insider content, information, stories, and inspiration from Toni and Michelle!
Isn’t it wonderful how our Earth can take in our food waste and grow new life and so much beauty? When we treat our Earth with care it provides us with an abundance of wonderful things.
Sadly, these days humans are getting into some pretty awful habits of trampling all over our planet and completely neglecting the natural flow of its ecosystems.
In this episode, we are so excited to welcome back Colleen Patrick-Goudreau to discuss composting: a beautiful way of making sure our food waste doesn't go to waste!
From turning food scraps into a homemade fertilizer, to identifying materials that would benefit our compost, we cover the relevance of composting in its most interesting form.
And what about worm composting? Is that even vegan? We'll answer that and more.
We love maximizing food as vegans, so if you’re ready to learn more about how you can do that, dive in with us!
