ABOUT THE FILM
Ben & bEartha (or Ben and Bertha) is a 40-minute documentary following the highs and lows of a passionate community of composters as they attempt to tackle the issue of food waste going to landfill. Their solution? A composting machine called bEartha and a community-scale approach that produces beautiful, living soil.
In this new documentary we get to know Ben and bEartha – a compost nerd and the machine he’s designed to revolutionise regional composting.
If compost isn’t your thing yet, here’s a story that might surprise you into a passion for kitchen scraps and microbes. And if composting’s already one of your great loves – because compost practitioners do seem to really LOVE compost – then we reckon this community-focused story is going to stir up your compost passion!
