Groundswell Following the success of the original City to Soil pilot in Queanbeyan, NSW, the Groundswell project aims to trial the collection and processing of household organic waste into high quality compost in three locations in rural NSW. The vision of Groundswell is “to prove the wider economic viability of the ‘City to Soil’ collection system and establish composted urban organic waste as a cost effective, high quality agricultural input”. The Groundswell partnership is funded by the NSW Environment Trust and involves Goulburn Mulwaree, Palerang, Queanbeyan City and Lachlan Councils, the Wiradjuri Condobolin Aboriginal Corporation (WCC), the Palerang Agricultural Society, Bettergrow and the South East office of the NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change Sustainability Programs division.
