Trading homegrown food for coffee

The Little Green Corner Cafe in Geelong is trading home-grown food for coffee! The cafe is turning that abundant homegrown produce into a type of currency, encouraging customers to swap their surplus fruit and vegetables for coffee. The Little Green Corner has also made lots of efforts to cut waste – 20 metres from the cafe’s front door is a kitchen garden tended to by the staff, they have solar panels on the roof (purchased through a crowd sourcing campaign), toilets with an integrated basin (water efficiency) and no bottles; their milk is received in stainless steel pails and they make syrups from excess fruit and various ferments to create a deliciously unique offering…. without waste!
