Loop Growers is the creation of Alice and Phil - two local growers who have created an innovative loop system for their bio-intensive farm. They work with local restaurants and cafes to collect excess organic materials, that would otherwise go to landfill, and bring it back through the farm via worms, goats, chickens and compost piles, to cycle back as fresh produce. The focus is on a wholistic approach of integrating systems and focus on community engagement.
