Rubbish can be worth its weight in gold! That has to be the slogan for the 2012 Compost Tour, which took in eight towns in the Bouches-du-Rhône area from 17 to 25 November, as part of European Waste Reduction Week. Around 500 people were involved in the 2012 edition.
A street crier, green waste collected in horse-drawn carriages or by bicycle and composting demonstrations are just a few examples of the events organized by the Garden Composting Network that GERES facilitates.
Reportage from the local TV station
To get an idea of the festivities, take a look right away at the report from the local La Ciotat TV station, filmed in the educational garden known as the Jardins de l’Espérance. (in French only)
