For centuries, farmers and gardeners around the world have been making compost to enrich their soil. Compost was so precious that it was known as black gold.
At Project Black Gold, we believe this age-old regenerative practice has a place in hyper-urban Singapore. Especially now, with increasing awareness of climate change, food security, and food waste, more people are seeking impactful solutions that they can apply in their daily lives.
Compost making is one of the rare ways in which Singapore can absolutely take control of, and directly benefit from, a highly sustainable recycling process.
Nothing is sent overseas to be dealt with. We can be 100% self-sufficient in turning “waste products” (rich resources, really) from our daily environment into useful bio amendments to improve our lifeless heavy soils.
Compost-making also gives individuals and communities a vehicle through which they can connect with each other and take meaningful climate action together, right in their neighbourhoods. For a City in Nature with thousands of edible community gardens, isn’t this a dream solution? We think so!
