Lauren Bell’s (Fb: Waste Not Food Recycling) journey from Sydney-sider, to station hand to fly-farmer, helps demonstrate that inexperience is no barrier to a rural experience. Also, that there is a diverse range of opportunities for women to contribute to the future of farming in Australia. After completing university in Sydney, a short-term job contract in Darwin launched Lauren into a life based in northern Australia, and eventually a career in beef cattle agriculture on remote stations spanning across northern QLD, NT and WA.
Working in agriculture Lauren developed a passion to partake in the challenge of sustainably feeding a growing global population. It was to this sentiment that Black Soldier Fly (BSF) farming appealed. BSF farming replicates natures own nutrient recycling process, using insects to upcycle organic waste into sustainable feed and fertilizer products. Now based in Broome, Lauren is using BSF farming to develop a system of organic waste management that builds the economies of regional and remote communities in Northern Australia, not landfills.
