The Structure

Compost Central is part of
The Institute of Composting Studies Australia (ICSA)


The Institute of Composting Studies Australia is a national and international platform facilitating education and enterprise surrounding the cycle of food production (food = waste = food), and specifically addressing the need to compost on location.

Using nature as a template, the organisation is focussed primarily around composting concepts and systems, vermiculture and permaculture, the cycle of global food production and consumption, food waste and the issues and opportunities which exist as bi-products. 

At its very core, the organisation embraces an equation that ‘waste equals food’ (waste = food), which opens wide a door of learning opportunities within the food ecology cycle.
