The Rocket composting project, which is now called Foodloop, is now back at full speed. Volunteers from the Maiden Lane estate and the local area have taken over the running of this project. We now coordinate weekly food-waste collections and feeding and maintaining the Rocket.
We are planning to market & sell our nutrient-rich end product – now branded as Plantify – which will eventually be our source of income. We are offering free supplies of this end-product to all volunteers.
We currently do food-waste collections on a Monday, which takes about 60 -90 mins from 9.30am. We ask volunteers to come once a month.
We are hoping to find mainly residents to feed the Rocket, a daily task that takes about 10 minutes.
