biodegradable decomposition vs degradation composition

Congratulations to Jo Davies (Madame Mulch) on her winning paddock sculpture, depicting the contrast between the relatively rapid breakdown of a ‘biodegradable decomposition’ of a compost heap - versus - the extremely slow breakdown of a ‘degradation composition’: a ‘rubbish’ heap made from mixed materials including recyclable resources collected over a two week period of household waste.

As a fitting tribute to Jo's passion for reducing landfill through community waste education, the esteemed judge, internationally acclaimed recycled sculpture artist, Christopher Trotter, has awarded her sculpure as the winning entry.

The sculpture is on display near the corner of the Boonah Rathdowney and Milford Roads in Boonah, and includes some beautiful items like roadkill and lots of plastic.
