‘Growing Abundance’ combating food wastage

r722879_5758758

In Australia, lots of fruit from both commercial and backyard orchards ends up rotting on the ground.

If it’s blemished, the supermarkets don’t want it, while many home owners don’t get around to picking their backyard crops.

But a group of orchardists and concerned residents in central Victoria have worked out a way to reduce the waste. 

Reporter Tarnay Sass went to visit founding member of Growing Abundance, Katie Findlay, at her farm in Harcourt.
