Teaming up to close the food loop

By Tanayah Wakefield

A partnership between Sesame Lane Care and Kindergarten and a Beachmere-based business is turning food waste from all its centres into compost, soil and worm castings.

It follows a successful trial at its Clontarf centre, with In the Loop BNE, which ran for one year and started in June 2020.

Since then, Sesame Lane has been rolling out the initiative across all its centres in a staged approach to reduce food waste to zero.

Mitch Langfield from In the Loop BNE explains how it works.

“The whole system is called a closed loop system. It’s where the food waste gets produced, I collect it, it gets turned back into compost, the compost is then used to grow food and then goes back into the kitchen. So, nothing actually needs to be wasted and you’re continually building nutrient density in whatever garden you’re getting your food from,” he says.
