Today is World Environment Day. This year’s focus is on protecting the land on which we live. 

We all play a role in helping to keep the Earth’s soil healthy and productive. 

One simple step we can all do, as individuals, is to collect food waste to use as compost. A sure-fire way to improve soil health! 🌱

And on a larger scale, a well-established practice among Australian nut growers is to reuse organic matter, like nut shells, husks, roots and prunings, as mulch to improve soil health in orchards and fields. 

Did you know? As perennial crops, nut trees provide year-round soil coverage, which helps protect against soil degradation and erosion.

Did you know that veggies are one of the most wasted foods in Australian households?

Use nuts to give veggies a second life with our pesto hack! 🥦🌰

1. Gather any green veggies (like broccoli, kale, spinach) and herbs (such as basil or coriander)
2. Blend in a food processor, together with oil, your favourite nuts, a squeeze of lemon juice, and any cheese you need to use up, to make a tasty pesto. 
3. Use as a quick pasta sauce, pizza topper, or healthy salad dressing. 

Tip: You can freeze homemade pesto into cubes, and store for up to six months.

An easy way to supercharge your diet with plant foods. And you’ll be well on your way to getting your target 30g handful of nuts a day! 🌰🌱
