Artists’ residence closes the loop on food scraps
Compostable organics come back as fertilizer for their rooftop garden.
Vancouver’s eight-storey Performing Arts Lodges is closing the loop on food scraps recycling by taking back some of its organic waste in the form of rich organic fertilizer for the rooftop garden.
The 4,000-square-foot garden provides exercise and fresh vegetables for building residents, plus vegetable trim and prunings for thousands of voracious red wigglers at WormWorx, an organic waste hauler and worm-based composting business.
