Ecologic life to be questioned
ISTANBULIn urban centers like Istanbul, around one kilogram of waste is generated per person per day, and more than half of this is made up of food scraps and other organic waste that could be composted.
In the “Ecological Living in City and Composting Workshop,” which will take place in the Garden at SALT Beyoğlu, participants will learn how to turn produced food waste into compost, also known as the “doctor of soil.” The event will open a discussion about producing our own food at home, the importance of organic nutrition, the ecological foot print and ecological farms, the habit of using disposable products and the need for an eco-friendly generation.
Organized by SALT in collaboration with the Buğday Association for Supporting Ecological Living, the workshop will be led by Buğday team’s Gizem Altın Nance. Participants are expected to bring their own organic waste to compost, such as fruit and vegetable waste peel, eggshells, leaves, and coffee grounds. The event will be held on Sept. 20 in Turkish and is limited to 20 participants.
