Kaicycle is an urban farming and community-scale composting initiative based in Newtown, Wellington. It provides a food scrap collection and composting service for local households, offices and small businesses. The collection service uses an e-bike and trailer.
Kaicycle turns local food waste into high-quality compost and uses it to nourish local soil and grow nutrient-dense food.
Kaicycle also sells farm produce direct to locals in weekly vegetable boxes. It makes donations to the local community centre and to Kaibosh, a Wellington initiative that collects waste food and then serves up meals to those in need.
Kaicycle keeps food waste out of landfill and turns it into high-quality living compost to regenerate local soils. It also provides education about soil health and food systems and is building community and environmental resilience by growing healthy food for local consumers.
