Compost and Grow Food Loop: Enabling composting and food growing in urban environments
Clare Brass, team Leader Sustain RCA and Founder and Director of SEED Foundation talks about Food Loop, a design-led co-creation project that offers local authorities a model for localised composting of biodegradable waste on housing estates. The project is working with residents on the Maiden Lane estate, in Camden, north London, to co-design a scheme that helps them to recycle their food waste. The food waste is composted on-site and used to grow fruit and vegetables.
Project leader Clare Brass will introduce the project and explain how CSM students can get involved.
