Poquito SquashTo follow up on Wildopeneye’s coverage of food waste on World Water Day 2014 we think you could usefully cast a vote for a scheme to help convert waste food into plant food! Planet Feed is courting your votes in Virgin Media’s Pitch To The Rich competition. It seems a very good idea to convert waste food into liquid plant fertilizer for local agricultural groups to use to grow fresh food. See the link below for more info and to cast your vote

DO YOU FEEL GUILTY ABOUT THROWING FOOD AWAY – EVEN THE STUFF YOU CAN’T RE-USE OR EAT? EVERYONE TELLS US WE SHOULD… AND I DO…. WE’RE GOING TO MAKE FANTASTIC NATURAL LIQUID FERTILISERS FROM OUR COMMUNITY’S OWN FOOD WASTE, MAKE THEM LOCALLY AND SELL THEM TO LOCAL GROWERS. AND AS A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE, WE’LL CHANNEL ANY PROFITS BACK INTO THE LOCAL COMMUNITY! THAT’S OUR IDEA. AND WINNING PITCH TO RICH WILL HELP US SHOW HOW WE CAN MAKE IT A REALITY! – SEE MORE AT: HTTP://WWW.VIRGINMEDIABUSINESS.CO.UK/PITCH-TO-RICH/NEW-THINGS/PLANET-FEED/#STHASH.HYZDSANI.DPUF
