Closing the Loop 

Edible Earth 

Turning soil into life through community regeneration and organic food projects. 

Jessica Barnes is the farm manager of Edible Earth Porirua, a project of For the Better Good. She has been in the role of farm manager since the garden's first planting in 2019. Prior to that she was involved in community composting projects in Porirua and urban farming in Canada. Passionate about all things green and the power of soil to change the world, Barnes spends a lot of time thinking and talking about compost, healthy gardens, and healthy communities.

City Talks is an ongoing series presented in partnership with New Zealand Institute of Architects Wellington Branch.
